The Choice of Non-fiction

There are many genres of books that include non-fiction choices such as biographies, true crime and historical writings. Most people would like to believe that reading them signifies a person’s academic drive, but there are many people who simply enjoy reading about events that actually occurred. Many of them appear to feel that reading fiction is a waste of time, and so they choose books in this category.

There is a fascination with events that have happened, and those who read these books find their own connections to the people or places where they occurred. They see it as a way to spend time reading without the belief that they are indulging in fantasies or avoiding reality. Those who seek out factual books find them to be honest and refreshing in a world where fantasy and fiction rule the air waves. Instead of imagining what will happen in the future or an alternate reality, they turn their imagination toward seeing people who really existed in this world.
