What type of books do you read

The categories here are a simplified version of the categories Amazon uses.

This.
I choose other because I read many catagories.

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:

(Fiction)
Science Fiction and Fantasy
Non-Fiction
Computers
Parenting

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..)

Pretty much. And in the distant past I have read self-help books for sure and parenting, maybe.

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

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.
