Dear Miss Snark,
I am nearly ready to begin querying agents and a question just occurred to me. I have been reading your blog faithfully and I don't remember this question coming up. When you send an email query to an agent, is it okay to use a read receipt on your email for your peace of mind that it was read? I've seen many agent's websites say if they haven't responded by two weeks to a month (of course this varies widely), they either haven't gotten the email or they aren't interested. A return receipt would at least avert the worry that they haven't received it. What do you think?
uh...you can tell when I open and read your email to me?
when did I open this one?
