I enjoy reading fiction and non-fiction. Character studies are more interesting to me than plot-driven works. Some of my favorite fiction writers include Ann Patchett, Nick Hornby and Jonathan Franzen. I just finished "Seating Arrangements" by Maggie Shipstead and loved it! I also have a thing for science fiction - especially time travel novels. As far as non- fiction is concerned, I love reading about new advances in neuroscience (written for the non-scientist!), nutrition and human behavior. The last non-fiction book I read was "The Power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg.
I have an e-reader but I use it for shorter works. I mostly prefer a "real" book because I am usually reading two to three books at once and it is easier to flip back through paper pages to refresh my memory.
Probably 24 -28.
Hello! My name is Donna McGuire and, as a long-time reader, I look forward to meeting others who enjoy reading well-written fiction and non-fiction.
I look forward to more stimulating book discussions!
