Fiction or Non-Fiction?

Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction??

I personally prefer fiction, exspecially Science Fiction, explore new worlds, new civilizations, learn about interesting technologies, ponder about the future Smile All the best things either in Sci-Fi or Fantasy all seem to roam around Fictional for me:)

Dispite my opening comment, I actually prefer Star Wars to Star trek Blum 3

Im more of a Fantasy/Sci-Fi kinda guy, but Ill read most fiction. My two favorite books are both by Orwell, 1984 and Animal Farm.

I don't care much for science fiction in general.

Either you go back in time or you stay in the present.

I especially enjoy reading about Rome in its glory days, the hundred years war or military books like Tom Clancy.

But I rarely finish the books I start reading, its a really bad habit.
(I blame it on the TV and the PC).

I read mostly sience-fiction/fantasy, because those always amuse me. I'm too lazy to search withing the huge mass or other Novels.

Do remember Recon it dosn't have to be future & Sci-Fi to be Fiction:)

Fiction (from the Latin fingere, "to form, create") is storytelling of imagined events and stands in contrast to non-fiction, which makes factual claims about reality.

.

Our library also classifes books as Fiction or Non Fiction and then sub catorgoizes from there.

I wonder how many hardened [SAS] bods are Harry Potter readers?

*raises hand*

To someone who understands English Literature they are probably too simple, but if you want an easy read for holiday then they're great.

I really don't like fantasy or science-fiction books. I don't care for Harry Potter either. Recently everyone's been ranting about this DaVinci code, but if you ask me it's a poorly written pile of crap. I'm also not ashamed to admit that I watch a lot of telly and don't read as often as some do.

I voted for "I can't read". :ohwell:

I like both.

I like science fiction, Star Wars, Star Trek, I know some of us were talking about Battletech a few months back. I like them all, but like Spidey I like Star Wars the best, specifically the original trilogy characters.

But my major interest is aerial warfare during the second world war. Mainly european theatre as I'm canadian and thats mainly where we were involved, but I've also started reading about the pacific recently. So I like books that are historical accounts of this.

I like sci-fi, but manly the starwars, Battletech, and Warhammer 40.000 K. beside that my prim interest is 2nd world war. And I especially like to read about the European theater, the eastern front. I am fascinated buy the tactics and the differences in them (German, Russian and American) I like the Kursk offensive especial the great tank clash at Prokorovska
