..Proofreading or Rephrasing is very much appreciating. Thanks for your help
The limited readership results in the public misunderstanding that scholars' works are not interesting but absurd. When they people spot academic books in bookstores, what crosses their mind is "difficult-to-read, with intimidating terms and boring writing style", though even when the book's topic sounds interesting. The history of sales of academic writing to the public has been so dismal because customers often put down books right after they know find out/discover that the author is an academic, or they just stay away from academic sections but idle around popular book sections. This has been for academic books a long-standing problem that contributes to their low sales and the stock reduction by commerical bookstores. That's why I am not surprised that the relative size of fiction sections to those of academic sections is at least 15:1. It is quite pathetic that potentially important works do not have a chance to appear in bookstore but end up in the trash.
