Other. I love historical novels, mythology and legend. Also non-fiction about various subjects like religion, culture, history, psychology and philosofy. Most fantasy is crap (in my opinion, I add, before I start a war). Every now and then I find something decent in that area, but it's hard. Of course Tolkien RULES.

Other.  I prefer non-fiction.  I haven't got anything against fiction, but I'm one of those "the world is interesting enough without having to make up stories" people.  I like biographies -- right now I'm trying to read Mark V. Tushnet's bio on Thurgood Marshall, but that isn't making much progress against my required reading.

historical novel and fantasy, though any well-written book is good, no matter what the subject is.

Argh, I have that too. There's too much required reading to do at the moment to really get somewhere with another book.

Yes, LOTR is DEFINITELY fantasy.

I used to like fiction best.  Now I like fantasy.  And it's not really due to LOTR.  I like Terry Pratchett.  I would HIGHLY reccomend him.  Although you might want to brush up on your classics.

I think fantasy is interesting.  It's fun.  It's usually very different from our own world, which is probably why I like it.

Sci-fi is SO not my favorite; I do love Douglas Adams, but he's funny and got me to look past the sci-fi aspect of his books.  And Dune...whoa.  The prequels are MESSED UP.  But I had to read them.

Other than that, I don't care for sci-fi.
