This isn’t going to be a long post, as I’ve talked about a lot of my non-fiction reading this year recently during Non Fiction November (see here), but since that post, I’ve added several more books to that list, making my non-fiction total 31 in 2018 as of today. That’s just about 22% which is an achievement (last year I read 20 books – 15%).
One of my bookish resolutions was to read more non-fiction – so I’ve succeeded! Being on Rebecca’s shadow panel for the Wellcome Book Prize helped early on in the year, and as I am very drawn to books with a medical theme, I’d love to take part again this year.
Medical books and memoirs have dominated my NF reading this year, so in 2019, I’m going to look for some other genres within NF to read more widely – so perhaps fewer medical memoirs, and more travel, arts and culture in general and essays perhaps, even history? (I do struggle with NF history – any recommendations?)
