I like to read humour but it's not on your list. So I went for other instead.

It's second on the list. Just spelled in the funny American way.

Horror is my favorite, next Mystery and Thrillers, so I could only chose Mystery and Thrillers since Horror isn't on the list (or is it Horrour? ).

As already said, multiple choice would have been better, as most people read cross-genre. I voted Mystery & Thriller, because whatever reading fads I have, I always return there.

Now that we know they are Amazon categories, I think it goes under romance

Same here. Like Apache, I voted "other" because I read several types.

If there was a multiple choice option I would have checked Non-fiction, Mystery..., and "Science Fiction". Though in the case of the latter, I would still be flaming the polester for grouping both Science Fiction and Fantasy. To me they are extremely distinct. I read a lot of Science Fiction and almost never touch a Fantasy book.

I'm like so many of you. My answer would be a variety of books. I read romance, suspense, chick lit, contemporary fiction, mystery.

Yeah, but you should have set up the poll as multiple choice. As has been mentioned upthread, I read just about all in the list (ok, not so much romance, self-help and parenting )

I voted for mysteries and thrillers. But in truth, i read mysteries - never thrillers- because i don't enjoy the feeling of being scared. I don't know why the two are always bundled together-they are very different.

I also couldn't vote because I don't fit into a single category.

I may read one or two books, occasionally a whole series of one genre, but likely as not I'll come completely out of that genre for my next book/series, so unfortunately I was unable to vote as a single genre wouldn't reflect my reading habits.

I imagine that few people only read one type of book. Your poll is therefore of very limited value.
