    either. Non-fiction.

    I was wondering the same thing.


    Quoting SusanTheWriter:

    Do you mean books on education or general nonfiction based on our interests?

    Recently, the non-fiction stuff I've read relates to the course I'm teaching this semester. I'm re-reading the essays I assigned to my class and reviewing other scholarly materials for my lectures. Additionally, my book group's current selection is a non-fiction title, which is a nice change of pace.

    Other than DD's textbooks so I know what's coming up, I tend not to read a lot of non-fiction.
    The one I remember most was The Honest Courtesan, which was a biography of a real courtesan in 16th v Venice.

    I was debating whether to assign a chapter of this for my class this semester (I ultimately decided against). But a student was quite interested in the topic of courtesans in the Renaissance and she did her presentation (and her research paper) on it. Veronica Franco was a very interesting woman, to say the least.

    I wrote a (not very good) short/novella about a Venetian courtesan. The research was great! I only wish the story had been better. *gg*
