History of Books
There were times when people had neither letters nor paper. The history of books is considered to begin with a written language when literary works appeared on leaves, clay tablets, bark. Only in the 14th century Johan Gutenberg from Germany invented printing with a movable type. Now millions of books are published every year.
Kinds of Books
There are fiction and non-Fiction books. Fiction books are thought up by authors though they can be based on true events. Non-Fiction books contain real facts.
Fiction literature offers a great variety of genres to readers: romance, historical novels, science fiction, fantasy, thrillers, fables, fairy-tales, drama, poetry. Non-Fiction includes biographies and autobiographies, dictionaries, encyclopedias, almanacs. Every reader has his favourite genre corresponding to his taste and character.
