A Different Meme

A different sort of one i pulled from Bookfool even though i didn't get tagged for it. I liberated it! woo hoo!


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


Science! Astronomy, archaeology, biology, botany, physics. Really anything that falls under the science section, as long as it is science and not weird defenses of religious ideas that sometimes get shelved over there. History and historical biography too. hobby books i am not too keen on but i can pour over a cookbook if i have a taste for the subject. I'm developing a bit of a liking for memoirs but they have to be weird, like about a drunk who adopts a dog or a guy who reads the encyclopedia. oh, and POLITICS! i have read so much on Iraq that i just can't anymore right now. and Atheism. DYK that the word MEME was coined by Richard Dawkins? oh and John Krakauer style non-fiction stories. Honestly, the only subject that springs to mind as what i don't want to read are detailed military histories detailing how battalions outflanked companies of infantry etc etc. I don't mind the political/historical books that mention various wars and battles but i don't need a blow by blow account.

b). Would you like to review books concerning those?

Hell yeah! I put up a blurb about every book i read on here.

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

well, to be in science, especially archaeology or anthropology you have to be a college professor. So since i would super suck at teaching anyone older than 4 i suppose i wouldn't want to do that. If i could do that without having to teach i would love to be paid to dig up bones. I don't have enough math to do physics or astronomy so I'll have to be content with reading it. Politics i would also suck at.

d). Would you recommend those to your friends and how?

I recommend all sorts of non fiction books to my friends but they rarely ever read them. BF picks up some occasionally. If it is one i own i'll just leave it with them to do as they wish.

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

Haven't.

I like writing bits up about the non-fic i am reading. Nice to have a different way to do it!
