Not to nitpick becuase I kow it would be impossible to list every genre and subgenre, but any such poll really should have literature choices, i.e. "Classic Lit" and "Modern/Contemporary Lit".
I've apologized for forgetting Literature, and putting Travel twice. I did the best I could. It's my first poll. I was more focused on the poll working correctly (and ebing multiple choice) than I was about the list I made. I used as much of the original poll as possible and added other categories using other posters suggestions. You can always use the 'Other' option to add a vote for any categories that I missed.

Thanks for this. I voted on this one as only one choice does not reflect my reading habits at all. What I'm reading depends a lot on my mood and the season. Generally read more in the winter but it also is more fiction whereas in the summer I may be reading more non-fiction...generally...I think. I've never actually analyzed what I read. Joining the 2012 challenge will be the first time I've even tracked what novels I have read.

Going by the precedent, humour has quite a few centuries over "humor".

Forgive me, it's my first poll. I was bound to mess at least 2 things up .
Ask a Moderator to fix the missing poll entries and reset the poll so everyone has to vote again.

I disagree. Literature is not a category. Classic is also not a valid category.

Well, humor is the correct spelling. Even Firefox agrees.

Well the Oxford English Dictionary disagrees (although does admit to a US variant. But this is very much secondary ).

Sometimes the Oxford English Dictionary does make mistakes such as humour.
