Here's the opening....
NEW YORK - The latest National Endowment for the Arts report draws on a variety of sources, public and private, and essentially reaches one conclusion: Americans are reading less.
The 99-page study, "To Read or Not to Read," is being released Monday as a follow-up to a 2004 NEA survey, "Reading at Risk," that found an increasing number of adult Americans were not even reading one book a year (bold mine).

The Crime Writer debuted in the US as an LA Times Top 10 bestseller.
As I See You, it spent 11 weeks on the Ireland bestseller list, 5 of those in the top ten.
4 weeks on the bestseller list in the UK.
4 weeks on the bestseller list in Australia.
So a great start for the English territories. Still to come: France, Italy, Germany, Holland, Spain, Japan, Israel, Poland, and more.
I feel fortunate to have such a great group of readers, librarians, sales reps, and editors.
