Fact or Fiction?

Do you like to read? 

When you read, do you prefer fiction or non-fiction?

When I was a girl, I loved to read!!  I can picture myself curled up on my bed or in my bean bag chair, so immersed in whatever I was reading that I never heard my mom call me!  Really, I didn't!  I mostly read fiction, and one of my favorites was the Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Nowadays, I rarely read fiction!  There are just so many things I want to learn more about, and time for reading is so scarce, so I usually read non-fiction.  I love to read about homeschooling, homemaking, home organization, biblical womanhood, Christian living, and health and nutrition.  Right now I am reading The Coconut Oil Miracle by Bruce Fife.  It is a fascinating book!

I also love reading blogs that discuss the above topics, but the more blogs I read, the less books I'm able to read!  What a dilemma!

I recently discovered a blog that I absolutely love -- The Legacy of Home.  It is full of old-fashioned wisdom for the godly homemaker!  Mrs. White blogs about many of the topics I love to read about!  Today I discovered that she is hosting a giveaway that I really want to win!  She is giving away a novel about homeschooling!  The book, which is called, Bringing Them Home, chronicles a family's journey from public schooling to home schooling.  This sounds like a work of fiction I could sink my teeth into!  :)

Just pop over to The Legacy of Home for a visit and leave a comment on this post, and perhaps you will win this new book.  Hey, if you do, will you let me borrow it??  :)

When I was young, I much prefered the "movie version" of a book....especially if it was a required reading from school(those always seemed more boring!) Now that I enjoy reading I have less "free" time to do so, and I get sooooo tired once I start!! Now THAT is a dilemma! :)

I will let you read all the boring nutritional books and then you can give me the "highlights"! I enjoy reading books that will encourage me to be a more godly wife and mother. I also try to read missionary books (if they are short...I find a "thick" book too overwhelming to even start!) I rarely read fiction but will on occasion. I loved reading the Elsie books for example!

I hope you win your book....or at least able to borrow it! :)

I read both fiction and non-fiction, but mostly fiction.

I knew you would have a good idea for addition. I'm going to try that one as today is a very busy day!
