CRRL My Librarian: From Fact to Fiction
We all know the old adage "truth is stranger than fiction," so it is no wonder that some of the greatest works of literature were inspired by actual events. Here is a list of books about true events that were spun into masterworks of fiction.
I’m interested in a wide variety of subjects and my reading habits reflect that. When it comes to non-fiction, I tend to read a lot of history books. Some of my favorite subjects are military history, colonial history, and historical mysteries/oddities. I’m a bit of a DIYer so, from time to time, I will read books on carpentry, cooking, sewing, painting/drawing or any other craft that might peak my interest. I also really enjoy the outdoors, so books on plant and animal identification are always interesting to me.
As for fiction, I tend to like books that move along at a steady to fast pace; anything with a bit of swashbuckling or daring deeds usually peaks my interest. I also read mysteries and horror on occasion.
