I must confess I tend to get bored easily when reading nonfiction books, even if I absolutely loved it in the beginning. Fiction tends to pull me into an alternate world while non fiction makes me stop regularly to think, which ultimately slows my progress.

I prefer fiction for the same reasons. :)

Some fiction may be someone else's real-life. Therefore I will choose any.

I live in a non-fictional world. So, I want a book to transport me somewhere else. Hence, I read fiction.
A book is a dream you hold in your hands.
