    1. This will be most helpful to librarians, especially those interested in readers advisory skills That said, true bibliophiles will also find interest and vindication as habits of readers are discussed at length This will help both professionals and lay readers understand better how people end up selecting the books they read.

    2. A book for avid readers, alphabetically organized, from Alexia, Bad Reading, and Changing Lives to Unreadable Books, Vampires, Westerns, X traordinary Readers, Year of Reading, and Z to A Reading.
