Musing Mondays: When women stop reading, will the novel be dead?

This week’s MUSING MONDAYS post…

I recently read an article (here), that I found through BiblioAddict’s blog, that talked of “why women read more than men“. In it, author Ian McEwan is quoted saying:

“When women stop reading, the novel will be dead.”

Do you believe this to be true? Why, or why not?

Nah, I don’t think so, but I do know that women make up for a good portion of today’s readers.  As for what that article said about the women taking the free book and not the men, it depends on where you are, I think.  Let’s just say, it was a nonpartisan environment where men and women were equally presented, it’s the nature of the beast for women to be friendlier to the stranger with the free book than men, I think.
