And another thing...

I'm sure you all saw this poll (PDF) and news story that found that 27% of Americans did not read even ONE book last year? Wow. I am afraid I know some of those people, and worse, that some of them READ THIS BLOG. Go on, read a book! (yes, I am talking to you.)


  1. I didn't see that story - but I'd file it under "things I just don't understand." (Shudder)

  2. I read that in my morning newspaper and was surprised. Well, part of me was and part of me know lots of people who don't read a single book a year, so maybe I wasn't as surprised as I thought :)

  3. Not ONE??? Most of me wants to find that really difficult to believe, but then most of my friends don't really read. And when I was teaching college freshman most of them didn't read either. My husband is also one of those people (although he reads trade journals, etc). I wonder which other demographics came into play with this stat?

  4. Wow, that's a LOT of people not reading... I hadn't heard of that poll, no. but, sadly, I can't say I'm that surprised!
