What do you think puts people off reading?
The concept of not liking reading is rather incomprehensible to me, but I think the biggest factors in people not reading is either a lack of time, not being able to find a book that holds their attention, or maybe they just haven’t found that right book that would really draw them into reading.
If you had to recommend a book to someone that you think would turn them into a reader, what would it be?
It’s hard to pick one specific book, because the book that would turn someone into a reader is vastly different for each person. It would depend on what their tastes are like, perhaps what kind of movies they enjoy which would be a good starting point to choose a genre. For some people, it may not even be the genre that matters but the format – they may find audiobooks to be more engaging, for example.
Have you every been a non-reader and then been converted?
I’ve always been a reader, but I’ve certainly been converted to some genres I would have never considered picking up 5 or 10 years ago, like science fiction and even the rare contemporary novel.
