    Personally, I love to read fiction. Since fiction is mostly imaginary it opens the mind up to new worlds and ideas allowing for the expansion of the mind in a complex manner. One can say non-fiction does similar, but addresses more of the complexities of life and matter. Fiction lets the creativity flow, while non-fiction lets us contemplate life and how we fit into it.

    I prefer fiction when I read, though I have been known to read a few nonfiction books they just don't keep my attention as well.

    I like to read non-fictions as it deals with the concrete facts. Instead of loosing myself in the fantasy of world of fiction reading, i prefer to be in real world of non-fictions.

    Readers should read a well rounded variety of materials of both non-fiction and fictional materials.  Sometimes I read to relax and at others I am seeking more knowledge.  I know readers who love reading cookbooks who don't cook, and readers who prefer to travel from their armchairs.  Magazines are sometimes informational, and others offer a wealth of new information on current topics.  Again, there should be a variety for every reader.

    I personally like fiction books more. I have a wild imagination when i read books, and these fiction books just makes my mind race. I like complex stories that can change my perspective of the topic i am reading about.

    I mainly like to read fiction as I love getting immersed in the characters and the story.

    I read just about anything but I prefer mystery fiction, biographies, true crime and non fiction.  I read a lot about WW2, esp survivor accounts from soldiers, politicians, holocaust survivors and the average home front citizen.

    I also read fluff books like True Blood and fan fic.

    Well, I read any book that appeals me. From literature texts to philosophical treatises, I simply read them with pleasure. Life is short. Why do I want to limit my reading enjoyment?
