What type of books do you read
The categories here are a simplified version of the categories Amazon uses.

The poll needs to be multiple choice to be of any accuracy for me.

Picked scifi and fantasy as that has always been my favourite genre... but really, I read almost everything. I love all fiction, even enjoyed some old romantic adventure type books. I've also read thrillers and mystery. And occasionally I pick up a history book, or any other educational book about whichever subject interests me, as well as I sometimes read religious books (I'm not religious, but I do enjoy reading about it. Helps me with my own beliefs, as well as helps me to have a conversation with religious people)
So really, I pretty much read everything. Only two choices above I never recall touching are self-help and sports.

I read a lot of stuff. Fantasy, Science Fiction, Non-Fiction (sciency, not historical), general Fiction. General Fiction would be most of what I read now, which isn't even an option. In order of occurence from your list:
Science Fiction and Fantasy
For your poll I choose other.

Voted for scifi and fantasy (although I'd really have preferred "speculative fiction", adding things like dystopias, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, alternative history and such into the mix), although it's not all I read - I enjoy a good mystery every now and again, as well as straightforward good old-fashioned adventures or even the odd literary novel.

So, does porn go under Non-Fiction, Self Help or Other.. Hmmm...
(I voted Scifi & Fantasy since I read that the most, although I do read different things also..)

I don't understand what "Education" is. Looking at my saved list of books read since 2005, I found this good one I read in 2008 that may count:
Christine Rosen, My Fundamentalist Education: A Memoir of a Divine Girlhood
If Education means textbooks, it's been a long time

I read a lot of different things, but MOSTLY I read general fiction/non-genre fiction/contemporary fiction.

Picked 'Mystery & Thriller', but read books in at least 6 other categories. Can I vote again?

I didn't vote but read most of the above, though I've probably read more speculative fiction.
I go through periods of reading a lot from a particular genre until I get bored with it and move on to something else for a while.

I can't pick just one since my reading is well-split among at least four of those categories.
