A readership goal

So I'm looking at the number of readers who receive our email delivery, and it's slowly creeping past the mid 7700's. Our actual readership is about twice that, what with people who read by RSS, on the website, or syndicated on other websites, but that's the only hard number we have and as numbers go I find it a little messy. I think a number like 8000 would be much more pleasant. And I think we can get there by the end of the year. If you have been meaning to tell your friends, coworkers, family, fellow listserv members, and blog readers about Unshelved but have been waiting for the right moment, I think this is it. May I suggest you find one of your favorite strips in the archive and use the "Send To a Friend" feature to alert them to our presence? I hope I don't have to underline the fact that even though our strip is set in a library it's meant to be read by people of all professions and persuasions. That said, it seems to have particular resonance for library workers (duh), booksellers, IT professionals, and those who have to deal with the public on a daily basis.

Now go take on the day.
