    In biology or on biology?

    I like reading books in biology/on biology. I mean reading books about the subject. Which of the prepositions is correct in this context?

    Re: In biology or on biology?

    You only gave a choice between "in" and "on" in your title. In your post, you wrote "n" instead of "in".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please use the "Edit Post" function to change "n" to "in" in post #1.
