This article contains some very interesting facts regarding the demographics of non-readers in America.
Most surprising is that 28% of those over age 50 haven’t read a book in the past year, compared to only 20% spanning the ages 18 to 49. But then again, if you’ve ever been to a nursing home then you know that the TVs are all on and the bookshelves are usually covered in a layer of undisturbed dust. Beside eyesight being an issue in the elderly, I don’t have an answer for why over a quarter of older Americans don’t read.
Overall, this article is worth the short read . . . unless, of course, you’re a non-reader.
The moment that two or three of you (if I’m lucky) have been waiting for is almost here. The cover for my new book will be revealed on Tuesday, April 3rd.
There’s just one catch, however. The cover for The Island will only be revealed to those on my mailing list (everyone else will have to wait).
If you’re not on my mailing list yet, don’t delay . . . subscribe today. You will NOT be spammed.
The cover reveal email will go out at 8AM Pacific, 11AM Eastern (USA).
You won’t want to miss it.
This includes book titles and character names too.
