It is time for another pros and cons! This time I will be discussing non-fiction. I don’t usually read non-fiction for fun, but as I am currently reading The Case of Beasts which is about how the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie was madeI thought this would be a fun thing to discuss! (Btw you can check out my review of the Fantastic Beasts movie here <3)
You learn something
Wich is sort of the point of reading non-fiction.. To learn something new about a hopefully interesting subject.
It is (usually) interesting
As I sort of said above it is (or at least should be) interesting reading non-fiction.. Especially if it is something that interests you (like the making of a Harry Potter movie) but it can also be things like politics (which I am very passionate about).
This is a rather stupid reason but I like that there are plenty of pictures, figures, tabels and illustrations in non-fiction to make it more lively and easier to understand.
You seem smart 😉
Forget everything about pictures being a stupid reason.. this one is worse haha 😉 But when you read non-fiction you do seem very smart and also learn some cool things that make you seem smarter (because you are!)
It can be boring
Poorly written or heavy non-fiction can be a killer to get through! Often in these cases you can find another book that is better written on the same subject though, so maybe try that out next time in stead of giving up 🙂
It can be VERY time consuming reading non-fiction but my experience is that it is usually worth it 😉 If not just drop the book and read something else!
A waste of time?
Ok so this is a sort of stupid prompt too, but if it is a boring book that you don’t have to read (for school or whatever) there is invented a thing called the internet where you can get most of the facts without having to fight your way through a bad book for nothing.
Do you read non-fiction? Do you agree or disagree with any of the points or have anything to add? Do let me know in the comment section below!
Love an happy Monday wishes
