A Common Reader
A Common Reader is a discontinued American mail-order book catalog established in 1986 by James Mustich, Jr.. It was notable among general-interest book catalogs for its eclecticism, with large sections of each issue given over to obscure literary classics.
A Common Reader appeared several times a year, with a readership in the tens of thousands. Its in-house publishing imprint was the Akadine Press.
As of January 27, 2006[update] the organization is out of business. They have gone into bankruptcy; there was an auction of their stock and equipment on February 22, 2006 in Pleasantville, New York.
