Finding without Seeking: The Information Encounter in the Context of Reading for Pleasure.
Ross, Catherine Sheldrick
Information Processing & Management, v35 n6 p783-99 1999
Examines non-goal oriented transactions with texts to investigate the information encounter in the context of daily living. Analyzes interview responses that illuminate two aspects of reading for pleasure: how readers choose these books; and books that have made a significant difference in readers' lives. Concludes with five themes emerging from this analysis that have implications for the information search process. (AEF)
