Böcker som inte är till för att vara praktiska, som inte är fackböcker vars intention är att lära dig ett specifikt ämne, det är det som är skönlitteratur. I skönlitteraturens värld kan allt hända, det finns inga regler, inga förhållningssätt eller krav. I skönlitteraturen har du mängder av genrer som kan tilltala dig om du gillar allt ifrån spänning, skräck, romantik, drama, komedi med flera. Precis som i filmens värld kan man säga. Böcker, precis som filmer, är eskapismen som tillkommit efter det muntliga historieberättandet och böcker i form av skönlitteratur togs fram främst kring 1800-talet. Skönlitteraturen samt all form av historieberättande som underhållning är människans sätt att hantera sin vardag och sitt liv. Att hitta något att dela med andra och att ha en gemenskap där man relaterar till situationer och händelser som intresserar andra.
Att läsa en skönlitterär bok kan vara något man gör när man har en stund att fördriva på väg till och från jobbet, i ett väntrum eller på rasten. Det kan vara dagens höjdpunkt som avslutning på dagen, när alla dagens bestyr är gjorda och man äntligen kan sätta punkt på bästa sätt. För tänk dig själv; hoppa över den sociala sammankomsten en fredagskväll, fylla upp badkaret, lägga sig med en bra bok och samtidigt ha ett upphällt glas vin på kanten. Okej, du kanske skippar badet och helt enkelt lägger dig på soffan. Oavsett så finns det så många stunder där en riktigt bra bok kan förgylla vardagen.
