Want to help turn your love of reading into helpful research?

So, last week I asked for your help by participating in a survey which is looking to identify correlations between the habitual trends of reading fiction and levels of satisfaction -essentially investigating the positive affects of bibliotherapy. I would like to thank each of you who have taken part to date – THANK YOU.

Also thank you to the many authors who have shared with their followers on social media in those first few days- Simon Toyne, Isabelle Ashdown, Tom Grieves , Julia Crouch, Peter James, Jane Rushbridge and Philip Pullman .

But, in order to make the results as valid and generalisable as possible… we need more.

If you haven’t taken part yet, please do. It takes less than 10 minutes to answer the questions and there is no obligation. Your identity remains anonymous throughout.

Please access the survey here – Survey

Please do feel free to share the link on to anyone and everyone you can! I will be posting about the results in a few months but if you would like to have see the completed final report, please email project@6ac.co.uk
