Ok...so to completely de-rail this discussion,
I have very rarely in my life been able to get into reading fiction...strange seeing as I was a complete sc-fi nut as a kid (starwars, star Trek, Dr who), but never got into the deep world of sc-fi fiction.
To this day I have never read the Lord of the Rings or Narnia trilogies or lovecraft ect.
What I am really into and cannot get enough of is non-fiction, especially biographies, usually musicians and famous artists.
I don't know why but I am insanely compelled to dig into their lives and find out the eternal "why" and "how" they did what they did.
