Short and sweet readers like a fast-paced story that holds their attention throughout. Books need to be full of short chapters, short stories or short in length. 

Slow to start readers need a fast-paced story with strong themes or action from the start to capture their interest, as readers take a while to get stuck into a book. 

Rapid readers have good reading stamina for some big chunky texts, as well as quick reads to add variety and interest.

Character focused readers enjoy books where they get to know a character who they can relate to, care about or want to be. 

Saviour the moment readers - have strong options and ideas about the character and get carried away with the right plot. 

Thrill seeker readers - love fast-paced action and excitement. Any character-driven texts should be full of drama or intrigue.
