    The difference between a novel and a book is that a novel in particular is a entirely fictitious story , while a book in general is non fiction. For instance, a novel would be of a narrative of a Gothic romance, fantasy, or a story in general that's entirely made up. However, a book in general could be a self-help book, a cookbook, an autobiography, or something else of that nature.

    Books are pages bound together. Novels are stories. It is like asking the difference between an animal and a dog.

    A novel is a story, whereas a book can be classified as a bunch of papers stuck together with a cover.
