I rarely read fiction. Mostly I pick up nonfiction or business books. Reading a juice story is a nice break.
The way my mind processes ideas from fiction is different. It’s more anecdotal, and I discover the ideas by relating them to existing examples. Philosophical concepts are not explained outright, so my imagination is free to make wild and new connections.
This is different and more playful than the direct, structured nature of nonfiction.
Plus I fall asleep easier.
