Please discuss this with me before I lose my mind

As I have been doing a lot of reading for the Cybils(well, I am way behind the rest of my judging panel, but I feel like I am reading whenever I can) I cannot help but think of the following question as I try to evaluate the book:

How much does “interest to target audience” count when we are contemplating books?

In the end, I mean do we really care who really reads the books as long as they are being read? I read the books and can’t help but think of the book only in my terms instead of whether or not an 8-12 year old age child would like the book. Really, if a book is well written it does not matter if you are 8, 37, or 86 because a good story is a good story. Am I right? Leave your thoughts.
