Books - Types and Genres
Thousands of books are published every year in the UK and worldwide. They are available in many different genres which are categorised below.
Non fiction books contain factual information about real items or events. An encyclopaedia is an example of a non fiction book. Other examples of non fiction books are language courses, history books, textbooks, The Guinness Book of Records and other broadly informational books. Of course, not all the information provided in non fiction books is correct, although it is supposed to be. It may currently be outdated if the book is old, or the article may have been inadequately researched initially, or subject to political bias.
A biography is an account of a person life written by someone else. An autobiography is a biography of a person written by themselves. I have not included biographies in the non fiction category, because it is evident that many supposedly factual biographies sometimes stray from the truth.
Fiction books contain stories or ideas that have not actually happened, although they may be based on actual events. Fictional books can be subdivided into the following categories:
