Reading literature often leads to other kinds of reading experiences. For example, you may read about a historical event in this book and then do research on that event for social studies class. When you read encyclopedia articles, newspapers, magazines, Web pages, and textbooks, you are reading for information. This kind of reading requires you to use a different set of skills. Where do stories come from? Some are whispered in the glow of a campfire. Others are discovered in a book. Wherever you find them, all stories begin in someone's imagination. Stories that come from a writer's imagination are called fiction. Two forms of fiction are short stories and novels. Both contain the elements of plot, character, setting, and theme. Sometimes a writer bases a fictional story on actual events or on real people, adding invented elements such as additional characters or dialogue. The purpose of fiction is to entertain, but it can also provide the reader with a deeper understanding of life.

Why did Homer's Odyssey show up thousands of years later as a made-for-television movie? Why has the story of Romeo and Juliet been told and retold throughout generations? Why is this week's mountain-climbing expedition next week's bestselling novel? People everywhere love a good story, whether it is as ancient as the tale of Odysseus or as current as today's news. Perhaps this is because a powerful story, no matter when it was written, explores conflicts, relationships, and emotions that all of us have experienced in our own lives. This is why some stories seem to live forever. And this is why we keep reading them.
