Which do you tend to read more of, fiction or non-fiction?


I voted fiction. I tend to do most of my reading right before bed so my mind wants to relax.

I like both and read both, even though I tend to turn to fiction more often.

I'm reading more non-fiction as I get older as there are just so many great non-fiction books nowadays. When I was younger they all seemed so dry and dull but there are some fabulous non-fiction writers out there: Alison Weir, Rhoda Janzen, to mention just a couple.

I read more non-fiction because I like to skip around and only read what I want to read at that time, instead of having to read page after page in order. It's an attention span thing. I'm also picky about fiction; most of what's out I'm not interested in. I can sit through the cheesy romantic stuff but other than that I need to look at facts.

Fiction. I only read non-fiction when I have to, or if it's research.
Unless non-fiction is written like a novel I can't get into it. It just bores me to tears.
