I guess it's a personal thing, but I like to learn something when I read. Where possible, I expect what I read in a novel to be accurate. If it's not, I consider it to be poorly researched. Obviously with science fiction some things are unrealistic (time travel for example is likely a bunch of BS but makes for a great story). On the other hand if a character sets out to make a homemade bomb out of two elements that don't even react then the author is an idiot.
