Personally I love fiction of many kinds. I don't really expect 100% accuracy in historical fiction...just the basics with a good story wrapped around them. I've read probably about equal numbers of both fiction and non-fiction. LOVED Killer Angels and all the Younger Shaara's works as well. Fiction feeds ones imagination and-I believe-helps fuel ones ability to think in the abstract. Factual reading serves as a way to self educate and also has been shown in some studies to possibly be a tool that may help stave off the onset of memory loss and other symptoms associated with Alzhiemer's disease.
