Book bloggers seem to love book events/author signings, but does the average reader?
Prior to starting a book blog, I went to a total of one author signing. Just the lonely one. And it wasn’t even a regular author signing. It was Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn concert signing thingy with a theater full of people and the lead singer of Blue October with his acoustic guitar.
Since I’ve started the blog, I go to author signing as often as possible. It’s made me wonder if the majority of readers who go to signings are in some way connected to the reading world more than others. Are the people at the events bloggers? Librarians? Students who read the book as part of a curriculum?
See, I’m not exactly positive that the average reader goes to book signings. Am I wrong?
Do you like books signings? Do you go to them? Do you think the average reader goes to them?
