Question by gorillaschoiceuk: Why do adults read books intended for children?
I am speaking of course of books like Harry Potter and Twilight and stuff like that. What gives? Have people suddenly become a bit dumber? There is a wealth of wonderful books in the world that have been written for adults and they go unread by the majority, yet juvenile garbage like Potter is consumed in record numbers.
I accept that people can read whatever they want. Fair enough.
As per the top answer – You are making the mistake of equating high sales (i said “in record numbers”…) with high QUALITY.
