The great thing about a captive audience . . . you always have at least one good customer who may or may not be willing to read your novel. There are many ways to make this happen: promise an enticing dinner, give them credit in your acknowledgements section of your book, tell them how much you LOVE them, or you could just go the other route, and threaten them with NO dinner, NO clean laundry, or NO tasty desert after dinner, until they are finished reading your masterpiece.
