Do you read books?  What's your preference?

I read mostly mysteries.  Where does that fit in your poll?

Some non-fiction as well.

Mysteries would be modern fiction, I reckon.  What sort of non-fiction?

For non-fiction: historical stuff, generally.

That'd be the History option, then?

Nowadays and since quite a while ago I'm focused only on history. I finished the last fiction book I have recently read in around August.

Mostly music texts.

Formerly, a lot of Lovecraft, and before that, a lot of science fiction (Frank Herbert, Roger Zelazny, Harlan Ellison, Samuel R Delany, Ray Bradbury, Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, Michael Moorcock, Iain M Banks). I pick up the latest instalment of the Dresden Files every year.

Today I picked out of the bookcase a little 150-page paperback by Moorcock - I love those, and I wish the publishing industry would bring them back. I used to be able to read one in a weekend.

I don't read much; I have to be in the mood for it and that's not often. But when I do it's usually teen fiction (John Green, Markus Zusak, Meg Rosoff, etc.) and (auto)biographies of musicians.

History, particularly JFK.    Wow, 'History' is winning.

It goes roughly like this:
70 % modern fiction (novels and short stories),
15 % non-fiction (mostly about either music or literature, occasionally about whatever else subject, not much biographies though),
5 % science fiction (if not included in "modern fiction"),
5 % classic literature,
5 % graphic novels and stories.

The percentage has great variation of course.
BTW, it comes to me as a big surprise that history books are winning!
