- None of the Above

To be honest, I enjoy fiction more than non-fiction. I rarely read non-fiction but when I do it is usually mythology/folklore, humor, history, art, religion, how-to's, books about writing, biographies and sometimes memoirs. I also read articles and magazines, which I guess counts as non-fiction, haha! It's sort of the same as my love for fiction: as long as it's interesting to me, I read it.

I LOVE myths/legends/folklore. I've always found it interesting. Same with religion. There's just something about learning about the past, people's culture and history, something magical and nostalgic. It's pretty much why I really like history/art history too. As for how-to's it's pretty sel-explanatory why I read them. And I enjoy biographies and memoirs because I like knowing about people's lives - I'm incredibly nosy that way.

But yeah, these are pretty much the only types of non-fiction I read. It actually surprises me that there's quite a few I read from the genre.
