Facts vs Alternative Facts

I have been a fan of alternative facts for years. Alternative universes, too. In other words, I love to read fiction. Pretty much any kind of fiction.

But what of our alternative-Alternative facts section? 

Who loves to read nonfiction?

I do, but only within certain areas. I mean I love history books, but these are relegated to those areas where I might potentially write books. Makes sense right? I mean, if I plan to destroy the world using a plague-type epidemic, why not use human behaviors that have already occurred during those times.

Last night, while attending a workshop by Kim Jones on cyber security, he mentioned that he likes to spend 15 minutes a day reading nonfiction in a field that’s not his area of expertise.

Then there’s blogs that I follow where the blogger reads both fiction and nonfiction books at the same time.

I’m a linear thinking person. I like to finish what I start (excepting craft/quilting projects) then move on. But I might give it a try just to see if my brain explodes. We’ll call it an experiment cuz I’m a scientist and it sounds better. Of course, I’m not gonna go crazy and read something completely different. I’ll stick with researching World War 1 and throw in a little fantasy to see how they mix.

If any of you read multiple books at a time, how to you decide which subjects to mix?

Until next time
