  1. We should read non-fiction books so we can get information about things. But I'm not sure if books that have information about dragons or witches counts as a non-fiction book because I don't really believe in those kind of things.

    1. Hey Timothy is right, though others may think the opposite. Jaxson would say different, though also religion is also an issue because some believe and some don't does that mean that we should have libraries for Christians and some for Jehovah's Witnesses. And who can't say that Non fiction isn't helpful, inspiring and mystical isn't that what makes them useful to the human brain. Non fiction can be myths or scientific it just matters what you want to look at and what learning you need in life! :3

  2. I really like your comments Timothy - you always make me think about ideas. I hadn't considered this one. You could be right - does it depend what you believe in? We find books like the ones you've mentioned in the non-fiction section of the library but you've made an interesting point. I wonder what others think?

    We think that it is important to read non-fiction books because it gives you more depth and understanding while fiction books can be a bit conplicated and confusing also non-fiction books takes us to a whole different place where anything is possible and also makes us set high goals towards the future!!!!!!!! also it make's us think before we act.
