That made me chuckle because that's kind of my default impression too. But yeah, it's a lot broader than that. In some ways it serves as a place to stick books that don't fit into any other category, because it's easier to market genre books than books that are just "fiction." I have a novel that straddles the line between several genres so I appreciate how difficult it makes things.
