Dissertation: Adults and YA

Fellow book bloggers and book lovers, I am in need of some help.

I am currently working on my dissertation on Young Adult fiction and its adult readership and it would be great if you all could answer the following few questions in the comments and pass it around to other book lovers you know.

1. How old are you?
2. Do you read YA? Why or Why not?
3. How did you start reading YA?
4. Do you think YA books are marketed differently to other books? Expand

And that’s it! I know some of the questions might hold rather difficult and long answers but any help you can send my way will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance and you all deserve a (cyber) cookie or two.
