Just curious. For me, I like to read basically anything that sounds interesting and has a good plot.
I enjoy stories that have a sense of truth to them. The characters are generally individuals that I can believe in and trust. The plot line should captivate me and transport me to times and places I have never experienced and never will on my own timeline. Mysteries have recently captivated me and short stories always grab me quick and hard.
I've always been a science fiction or fantasy guy I guess, with some modern fiction thrown in there as well. However, every once in a while something different catches me. The last things to get me were historical fiction, and experimental stuff like Kurt Vonnegut.
I'd typically say that I'm a fan of just about every genre, as long as there's a catching storyline and believable characters, but my bookshelves are full of paranormal, science-fiction, mysteries, dystopian, and romance novels. I like a mix, but I tend to be drawn toward these genres the most.
I like books of both fantasy and paranormal fiction the best. However, I do read quite a lot of factual books as well. I will read any book regardless of genre if it seems interesting and grabs my attention.

I do like to read short story than a novel. But if I got a good novel or a novel of a famous writer then I read that. What you prefer among them.
