Fiction is a genre in which the works are based on made-up events (more or less).
Why do we read fiction?
Works of fiction are often valuable resources for study and research in nearly every facet of academia. We read nonfiction to learn factual accounts of historical events and people's lives. But, the term "nonfiction" also refers to books of science, math, geography, and most other works of academic literature.
