Read the passage below carefully and answer the question.

 

Books

 

   There are many kinds of books in the world. They fall into two major categories which are fiction and non-fiction. Well-received books from either kind are even made into movies and games.

 

   Fiction books are written using the imagination. The characters and events surrounding them are not real. Fiction books can be found in abundance at bookstores and libraries. They can even be found on the shelves of comic shops and game shops. Often, fiction books are written in two or three combinations from the science, fantasy and classical groups. The most popular kind among youngsters is probably in the area of fantasy. Anything involving magic, spacecrafts and aliens, or superheroes and time travel may be used in this category.

 

   Many different kinds of non-fiction books are available on the market. These are written about facts, real people, real events and real places. Most of the time, non-fiction books are written by people who have experienced or witnessed the happenings themselves. Real-life stories can also be found in magazines and newspaper.

 

   As more books are written and produced, we have more to choose from. Although reading is a good form of habit, choosing the right kind of books to read is just as important. We, as the readers, have the responsibility to learn to choose wisely.
