This is another article a listserv alerted me to.
The history of readership is fascinating (to me, at least). Reading trends can tell you so much about social history and is intimately tied to book and provenance history, which I also find fascinating (because I’m a fascinating person). This article sets forth what the history of readership encompasses and why it’s important.
So go forth, read the article, and realize how your own reading habits affect the ongoing history of readership.*
