What is a Genre?
A Genre is a particular type or category of literary, musical, or artistic composition. The two main types of genres are fiction and nonfiction. One way fiction books are put into genres is by their content or theme. Major fiction genres are (but not limited to) fantasy, science fiction, mystery, realistic fiction, historical fiction, and action/adventure.
