Armchair BEA: Genre Non-Fiction
Today's post for Armchair BEA is all about the non-fiction genre. I personally do not read non-fiction, I have tried a few times and I just could not get into it at all. I think a big part of it is that I read because I want to escape reality and non-fiction is too real for me.
I have heard a lot of good things about autobiographies though (and I have actually read one of those...) I read Brad Paisley's DIARY OF A PLAYER, I am a huge country music fan and I did really enjoy this book learning about his journey to a huge musician (spoiler, he actually failed a music class when he was younger).
I feel like I should try to read some more non-fiction, just to immerse myself into something different (my BF always tries to get me to read THE WEALTHY BARBER because it's supposedly got some great advice in there). I just find that I am always more drawn to fiction to take myself into something fun that I would never experience otherwise.
Any of you readers have some good advice on how to get into non-fiction?
