Anyways, my vision of nonfiction has changed. I thought that all nonfiction was generally very B-O-R-I-N-G. Boring. Just not appealing, old history textbook boring. But when I read The Diary of a Young Girl, I was actually very interested. It may just have been me, but all of the facts about her experience were interesting, and I was really into the book. Just loved it.
Now, I'm not saying that everyone who read or will read this book that does not like nonfiction would change their view of nonfiction. Books are like wands from Harry Potter almost. You don't choose them - they choose you. That feeling that you get when you think you found the RIGHT book for you to read. The enjoyment when you read it and find that you really liked it. The sadness when you have to part with it. The Diary of a Young Girl may not choose you, and you may not like the book, but I was once a nonfiction hater, and now I have an open mind. All I'm asking is for you to keep an open mind about books you typically don't read. Try reading them. Maybe you'll find that you'll like that sort of book. But you'll never know if you don't try.
I challenge the people who come onto this blog to read a book they don't normally read within a month, and then comment on this post about their experience.
Remember, keep an open mind. If you are biased, your experience will be altered.
