…because Why We Read What We Read goes through the end of 2006, but we’ve actually read a few things since then. And this way, people can actually comment on our crackpot theories! Much better than a stinky old book. (Just kidding! Our book is not stinky. You should really buy ten copies.)
Before we get to discussing any particular books, I will say that we’ve been keeping a close eye on the bestseller lists for all of 2007, and nothing whatsoever appears to have changed. Nora Roberts is still cranking ’em out; emotive literary fiction is still going gangbusters; and, of course, the release of Harry Potter 7 earlier this summer got everyone all riled up. In short, our book is more relevant than ever! And you should really buy ten copies.
(Oh, one last note: we’re assuming if you’ve found this blog that you have probably read our book. So, while we won’t attempt to be mysterious on purpose, in our blog posts we’re undoubtedly going to refer to discussions and conclusions in the book, especially when comparing other books to those covered in Why We Read What We Read. If you’ve ignored my exhortation to buy ten copies, or even one for that matter, we apologize in advance for any confusion you may experience.)
