  1. Is the title meant to echo Robert Alter's The Pleasures of Reading in an Ideological Age, perchance?

  2. I'm looking forward to it, especially since I first became interested in your work when I read A Theology of Reading. Congratulations!

  3. Presumably there will be a Kindle version, though I don't know when it will be released. There are things in the book that would make it very ironic if there were not a Kindle version.

    As for the Alter title, I did not imitate it but I decided not to let the similarity alter my preference. Alter's book is a good one, though not actually much concerned with pleasure, oddly enough.

    Thanks to others for kind words!
