When you sit down and read a story, what is your favorite genre to read? It could be nonfiction, any type of fiction, fantasy, mystery, etc.

I actually like a variety of books.  I am drawn to books regarding people's faith.  I recently read Left to Tell which was the story of a young woman's survival from the genocide in Rwanda.  It was a heartbreaking story of grief and loss, survival and forgiveness.  It was very inspiring.

I don't mind most genre's as long as there is a good story involved. My main genre though is fantasy, medieval type of stuff.

My favorite genre overall is biographies. I am currently reading The Strange Odyssey of Michael Jordan by Sam Smith. It's a pretty good book about Michael Jordan's first retirement and his come back to the Bulls in the late 94-95 season. But I also like reading books that are comical such as the Archie Comics digests.

I love the mysteries; I call them "whodunit" books because, for me, I wonder who did it all through the book and am intrigued when I finally discover who did it!  These days, it is not always the butler who did it!! :thumbsup: :o ??? :o :wave:

My favorite genre is non-fiction.  I love to learn new things all the time and reading non-fiction allows me to do that.  I used to read a lot of fiction when I was younger, but I really don't read fiction at all anymore.  I find this reading preference also transfers to my TV watching.  I almost exclusively watch non-fiction programs and stay away from the fictional stuff.
