Other than for school, do you read books to learn how to do something? What was/were the topic(s)?
I read a lot of non-fiction, so yes, I have read books that “teach” you topics.
For example, I have read books on writing, photography, animals…things like that. If it’s about a subject that grabs my attention or something I enjoy, then I don’t mind reading a book about it and learning about that particular subject.
