No time for fiction

I read books which tend to be either historical, about a specific event or person or subject. In terms of TV I rarely ever watch films and mainly watch news, sport. Very occasionally do I watch a drama, although I am currently enjoying the Politician's Husband.

But does anyone else really not have much time for fiction? I've tried to get into fiction books and have read a few but I never find them all that engaging and I struggle to stay the course and give up midway through. I hate the unnecessary detail you get to pad the things out in fictional books. Like a three page detailed description of the three seconds before, three seconds during and three seconds after the fair maiden takes her hat off, or something. I find it tedious.

Similarly to TV and books, I dislike games, which can also be called a fiction, I guess.

Is it unusual to have a largely blanket dislike of fiction regardless of what genre it comes from.

I've seen some the threads you've replied to in the politics forum. If you're into that you must be into fiction.;)

Are you aware there's a Book and Literature forum?
