A book is a collection of thoughts written on paper and bound. It could be anything. For me, novels are types of books. It isn't the same thing. You can always call a dictionary a "book", but you cannot call it a "novel". Get the point?

I think a novel is fiction. Where as a book can be anything.

I think a novel is compose of a fictional story only whereas on a book it can be a fiction or non-fiction.
