Mysteries: Not just for geezers.
After hearing dire predictions about teenagers' reading habits, I was happy to read the PW article by Bookreporter.com's Carol Fitzgerald that reported on the habits of young "uber readers." Mysteries were reported as favorite reading by 61 percent of the sample (after fiction, series, romance, fantasy, and adventure). It should be noted, however, that the respondents were overwhelmingly female (96 percent).
