I voted SF & F but only because these are the genres that I read most.

However, SF & F only make up say 30-40% or so of what I read.

I also read Historical fiction and non fiction, Mystery and Thrillers, Science and Political non fiction and Humour.
I read other types of books as well but not in such numbers that it makes any difference (say once or twice a year I will read a book that does not fit in any of the above).

I'm one of those people that re-reads books, in some cases a a lot of times (I have "favourite" books and series that I must have read 7-8 times).

I'm going to attempt to make a second poll with multiple choice. The OP said it was ok for me to do so.

I voted romance...but...

Have you read Barbara Silkstone's fractured fairytales? She writes funny, fast-paced mysteries. One is called Zo White and the Seven Morphs. Very entertaining.

Just get a moderator to redo the poll so everyone who has voted can re-vote and everyone who hasn't can actually vote.

Also, Mystery & Thriller are separate categories just as Science Fiction and Fantasy as well as Lifestyle & Home should be separate. Just because Amazon botches them, doesn't mean you have to as well.

Can't vote because I don't read only one genre - sorry.

Maybe you should try to vote for your favorite genre among all those you like, the one that stands out above the others for you.
