Fiction is more popular than non-fiction, according to those who took the time to vote in this week's poll, which asked 'do you read non-fiction?'
Out of the 79 votes cast, 56.96% of you said you read fewer non-fiction books than fiction.
Some 16.46% said you didn't read fiction at all, while 12.66% said you read equal numbers of fiction and non-fiction books.
A further 7.59% said that even though you didn't read non-fiction you hadn't discounted it completely: you'd read a non-fiction book if the right one came along.
Just 6.33% said you read more non-fiction than non-fiction.
As for me, if it isn't already obvious from the content of this blog, I'm a fiction reader, who dabbles in a little non-fiction. And the odd bit of humour on the side. I'm not sure where cook books fall, do you?
PS> I'm giving the weekly poll a little rest for awhile. Many thanks to everyone who's taken the time to vote over the past four or five months that the polls have been running. It's been fun finding out everyone's opinions about a whole host of bookish things.
