I think that as authors we sometime lose track of what really drives publishing, and that is what readers want--what readers need. I have a nascent idea. I want to really hear what kind of books readers want and have trouble getting. So I am going to ask. I encourage everyone to report this question and let me know so I can link to it and take note of all the replies. Post it in any kind of forum where it will be welcome, and where some kind of reader is to be found. I will really appreciate it.
The question: As a reader what specific kinds of books do you most enjoy but have trouble finding? Please be as specific as you can and describe any kind of book distinguished by any quality such as sub-genre, non-fiction subject, time period, length, writing style or anything else that is important to you as a reader. I am looking for the kinds of book you would buy more of, if you could only find them.
