Which do you prefer - reading realistic books that you can easily identify with, reading realistic books from times past or strange environments to dream yourself away to or finally, to read fantasy and similar books about other worlds, magic and supernatural phenomena?


Most of the time I prefer to read either about the past - realistic is fine there - or fantasy and science fiction, occasionally ghost stories. That is, I like to dream myself away, to escape my own reality. Occasionally, I also like to read realistic books too, if the reality they depict is very different from my own. A few things have improved considerably in my life in the past year, but some other things have deteriorated so much that I really need to dream myself away.
