Is This Important?

For the past month I've been posting copyrighted excerpts of my book, Dementia Diary, on this blog. As I said weeks ago, I hope that getting a taste of the book in this way will prompt more people to buy it (and many have)—but, more importantly, I want people to read it. I wrote it primarily to help caregivers cope with their own situations and I've been gratified by the hundreds of wonderful email comments I've received since my memoir was published. However, only two reader comments have been posted so far for the book excerpts on this blog, leading me to wonder whether anyone is reading these excerpts, and if this is something I should continue. So here's a test of whether this is important to you. If you are reading and enjoying these excerpts, please post a comment and let me know. If I don't receive substantial feedback during the coming week that these excerpts have a following, I will discontinue posting them. Of course, the entire book will continue to be available for purchase from on-line retailers. I hope to hear from you.
