Nostalgic Reading Practices: an Online Case Study

This paper investigates the role of materiality in nostalgic reading experiences through an explora-tory analysis of online consumer reviews of a backlist young adult book series. It finds that although materiality does play a role in consumers’ experiences, access to the story contained within the book is their primary concern.
