Books can be divide into two main types: fiction(novels and stories) and non-fiction(histories, biographies, and self-help books). Which of these two types of books do you generally prefer to read? Use specific and details to support your answer.

Books are significant and important in every person’s life. Some people want to read novels, artistic literature, not to mention scientific fantastic literature. I prefer to read non-fiction books and I stay on my point for these reasons. First of all, non-fiction literature contains histories, and biographies. Moreover, the historical literature retells about battles, wars,and incidents which can help us to understand the history of the world and not make the same mistakes. For example, I love stories about ancient Greece. I have read “The Iliad” by Homer three times in my life. Nevertheless, it is considered the oldest book in the world, but it retells a story that happened before that time. Furthermore, non-fiction literature can be about the real life of the writer. It usually attractive and interesting for the reader. However, when we read this type of book, we can imagine what kind of life has been then and we see in the book the real conversations behind the characters from the book, and one of this characters may be the author of this book. For example, my favorite book on this type of literature is the Wounds of Armenian, or lamentation of the patriot which is written by Xachatur Abovyan and titled in 1858. Moreover, in this book the author is one of the characters, but he does not play the main role in this realistic novel. In addition to this, I prefer to read self-help books, because as a rule this type of book is destined to learn people something. Furthermore, it can be vocabulary, or book of grammar,or other rules. And it is useful for every student. In conclusion, I believe that non-fiction books are preferable, because it is about real stories, usually describing the author’s life, to say nothing of self-help books, which is the most helpful book for every student.
