Non-Fiction All the Way?

Now there's a post title I would NEVER have expected to see on my blog!

Gautami has started a new meme about non-fiction, and I have had it sitting in my draft for about a week! I am so sorry that I didn't get to this earlier Gautami.

What issues/topic interests you most--non-fiction, i.e, cooking, knitting, stitching, theatre infinite topics that has nothing to do with novels?

For me, I am most likely pick up books about history, cooking or biographies/autobiographies/memoirs. Actually, when it comes to cooking I am most likely to buy magazines, and never actually get around to reading them but I am partial to a beautiful looking cookbook as well.

Would you like to review books concerning those?

In theory, if I read the book, I review them, although you all know that I am notoriously behind in my reviews! I am keeping up to date with the ones that I am currently reading but not making much impact on the backlog I have.

Would you like to be paid or do it as interest or hobby? Tell reasons for what ever you choose.

Whilst it would be nice to be paid to review, many of my reviews are purely based on my gut reactions to what I read and therefore can be changeable which I don't think bodes well for doing it professionally. In terms of being paid, I am still at the point where I am thrilled when I receive a package contains free books, so I am still happy with that for the time being. If anyone wants to give me money as well I am all open for that too!

Would you recommend those to your friends and how?

Mostly word of mouth. Luckily the girl I sit next to at work is a reader too, so we often have a chat about a variety of things including what we are reading, books we have loved etc.

If you have already done something like this, link it to your post.

Here's a link to everything that I have tagged as non fiction on my blog.

Please don't forget to link back here or whoever tags you.

Given that most people have already done this (again, sorry for being so slack!) I am not going to specifically tag anyone, but if you are interested please feel free to do it!
