- NF readers often read NF and F;
- Exclusive NF readers like the "real'";
- Readers pick NF when they expect interruptions;
- They read to be entertained AND "to take something away";
- They are avid readers in general
From Neal Wyatt**:
"Reading nonfiction, even highly narrative nonfiction, is a different experience than reading fiction."
- She calls this the Learning/Experiencing appeal.
A personal definition:
Not so much escapist readers as involvist readers
