Difference Between Fiction and Nonfiction
The term “fiction” refers to literature that is based on the author’s imagination. Fiction genres include mysteries, science fiction, romance, fantasy, chick lit, and crime thrillers. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities, George Orwell’s 1984, and Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice are examples of classic literature. In addition, our Fiction Department has a wide collection of DVDs of recent movies and television shows.
The term “nonfiction” refers to literature that is founded on facts. It is the most inclusive literary genre. Biography, business, cooking, health and fitness, pets, crafts, home decorating, languages, travel, home renovation, religion, art and music, history, self-help, true crime, science, and humour are just a few of the topics covered in the Nonfiction Department. We also have a section of award-winning and famous documentary DVDs.
