A Completely Useless (but kind of fun) Bookish Infographic

April 13, 2016 Fun Graphics, Let's Discuss 35

I know I’ve been away for the past couple of days. We had our final performance for my Homeschool Co-op Acting class yesterday – we did poems by Shel Silverstein – so fun! Since my son was doing sound, we had to be there for the dress rehearsals for all the other classes too. PLUS I had to help my daughter with her project for her project fair. (Turned out great!) That took up our entire Monday and Tuesday. I’m now in recovery, BUT we still have more dress rehearsals on Friday and our final Musical Theater performance on Saturday (the one I wrote).

Anyway, I thought I’d tide you over with a fun, completely useless, nonsensical infographic I made comparing how I feel when I read fiction to how I feel when I read (self-help type) non-fiction. I mostly did this because I bought Lifetime access to Stock Unlimited through AppSumo (for a fantastic deal) and really wanted to use something from it! Since I had no real statistics to use in an infographic, I thought I’d make some up. I started with a fun template and made it my own. Enjoy!

Fiction-vs-750

What do you think? Do you like to make fun graphics just for the heck of it or am I the only one who spends WAY too much time on such things? I want to know!

    ooh good luck with the play this weekend! this is such a cute graphic. Who cares about science? It’s so pretty! And I get what you mean. I actually love reading non fiction and self help type of books. I don’t always implement ideas from them IN my life, but it’s still interesting to know. But yeah, I read fiction way more often.

    Good luck with your rehearsals! I love these infographics, especially the part where it says 30% logical thinking 90% feels! awesome post 🙂

    Um, I’m still kinda speechless that you made the graphic. I haven’t even finished reading it all yet, I’m just… in awe. Go you! 🙂 But really, isn’t it funny how the “self-help” stuff can actually leave us feeling less than helped? LOL Bring on the fiction for all the good feels! 🙂

    I’ve been neglecting the blog as well. I’ve recently started a new job and it’s quite exhausting. I barely have enough energy to talk to my family. Sigh.

    Loved this infographic and totally agree! I’m so the same way in the fiction vs nonfiction debate!

    That is super cute! Love it! I also totally agree with you. I could probably use a couple self help books, but can’t bring myself to ever actually read one. There’s just too many good fiction books out there that I want to read.

    I am in LOVE with this! And my goodness, it is SO true! (Though, I probably more than 7% bored. But I can be simultaneously bored AND realizing I am not going to do anything with the information, right? 😉 And the fiction side is me COMPLETELY. Like, so accurate!

    Also, the infographic itself is really pretty! You did a great joB! Good luck with all the musical theater stuff- you are like, supermom! 😀

      I can’t take credit for all the prettiness – lots of it was already there on the template. I added some graphics (and all the words, of course) – I figured I’d start myself off easy! 🙂

      I figured your brain would be just like mine on this one. Except maybe mine has a bit more fluff since I’m older and my kids are older – they’ve been sucking out brain matter for longer than yours have!

    THIS IS HILARIOUS AND WONDERFUL. XD I think it’s super creative, Nicole!! And I love that it was 90% feels and 30% logic. 😂 SO TRUE. Although mine can be 50/50 split but otherwise, pfffft, think outside the box. That is the best way.
