Nonfiction

FYNR-nonfiction.png

Whether written with or without objectivity, on good faith, Nonfiction is presented as fact. Books vary in their composition, with everything from just narrative, to combinations of documents, diagrams, photos, and illustrations being used to convey the topic to the reader. Contrary to its stodgy image, not all Nonfiction is scholarly. For instance, there’s Narrative Nonfiction, a popular form of Nonfiction in which facts are presented in the form of a story. From piquing curiosity to teaching new skills, Nonfiction truly has a book for every interest.
