Booking through Thursday

This week we are asked to consider

What, in your opinion, is the definition of a “reader.” A person who indiscriminately reads everything in sight? A person who reads BOOKS? A person who reads, period, no matter what it is? … Or, more specific? Like the specific person who’s reading something you wrote?

I have heard certain textbooks called readers.Some reading schemesare called 'readers' for children in school, but I usually attach the word 'reader' to anyone who reads.

I agree -- I think reading for pleasure defines a reader, whatever the genre.

Two definitions: an object and a person!
