Why do you read non-fiction?I read non-fiction because I love learning about the world around me. It's not that you can't learn from fiction/poetry/etc. but the scholarship involved in non-fiction has a special place in my heart and my reading life.
Where in your home do you read most?As I read quite equally between physical and digital books, I read most anywhere. When my partner and I have joint reading time, we usually occupy the reclining sofa in our living room; put on some relaxing music in the background and curl up under some blankets and it's just heavenly.

Non-fiction can teach us a lot. What subject or topic have you learned a lot of because of your reading?In the past two years, I've made it my mission to expand my understanding of the ways that America has (and, more appropriately, has not) dealt with race. While there are innumerable fiction and poetry works that accomplish this well, I've found a lot of non-fiction books that have been tremendously valuable in opening my eyes.

So I didn't get to all of the great non-fiction books that I wanted to during November, but that's okay. Non-fiction isn't just for November...it's for every month! I try to include some non-fiction reading every month, and I've spent time with some great ones thus far in 2017.
