Does anyone read books anymore?
I've written four books and cant get any of my friends and acquantances to read my books. Most say they watch TV, text, tweet, facebook or go to the movies.
Do I have to pay them to read my books??????
Hi Jim! Welcome to Book Country! We are so glad to have you here on the site.
It's wonderful to hear that you have written four books--that is really phenomenal. Even if your friends and acquaintances aren't big readers, that doesn't mean your work can't find an audience here on Book Country. We'd love for you to get involved with reading & reviewing (via the
dark blue tab on the far left of the screen), and posting your own work for others to review.
Let me know if I can help you get started.

According to this report from On the Media a few weeks ago, print books are booming:
Lots of people like the e-readers. I tend to prefer one when I'm away from home, because physical books are so bulky. But I still associate the act of "reading" with a physical book - and I see lots of people walking around with books because a book is just a different tactile experience.
