In this article, we compare the Netherlands and Flanders in the extent to which book readers and mediators take note of books and media information about books from each others literary fields. For this purpose, over 1700 readers and 200 mediators were surveyed. Results show that there is little interaction: both the Dutch and the Flemish mainly focus on domestic literary products and media. The Flemish tend to consider Dutch products slightly more than the other way around. Similarly, mediators go a little more abroad than readers.
