Dismal News About Reading

Did anyone else see this article last week? It claims that 1 in 4 American adults did not read a single book last year. Disturbing, yes...surprising, no. We live in a culture that is satisfied (I would use the term "sedated") into being force-fed ideas and opinions by the television producers, all in the name of entertainment and relaxation.

There...that was a relatively short rant, and I am done now...so get off the computer and go to the library!

  1. In the past three weeks or so I've read for books.

    granted I'm a nerd.

    I just finished "Reading Lolita in Tehran"

    HIGHLY reccomend it!

  2. And, Erin, you're the second person to recommend that book, so I'll pick it up today at the library and let you know what I think...
