One in four American adults read no book last year!!!!!
*gulp*An AP-Ipsos poll reveals that the average person read four books which is something of a relief to those of us who love the world of books.
I have been saying for years that adults are by and large unable to sustain reading for long periods of time as their brains have been re-programmed by the gotta-have-it-now sound-bite passing for information society in which we live.
On a brighter note, more women than men and more liberals than conservatives read books...perhaps there is hope for society yet!
