Oh, Readers … Take 3

This is the third in a series of blog posts I’ve written directly addressing Readers. I’ve wanted to discover the answers to many questions I know are of interest to other authors, as well. First there was Oh, Readers . . . where art thou? then Oh, Readers … Take 2.

Since first posting in Jan. 2015, I continued to gather interesting articles and pertinent information on Readers, reading, why we read, and how choices are made, and thought I would list them here in a separate blog post. Please feel free to make comments or observations below this post. I want to hear from more of you about what you think. I’d especially like to hear from you if you know of any new and/or effective ways for Authors to reach their Readers.

Happy Reading!
