If you are like me, you thought reading books was becoming passe. Reading books is what people did in the old days before television and all of the various forms of entertainment we have today ruined people’s desire to read. Apparently that’s not the case. Book-reading is more popular than ever, perhaps due to increased education and the internet. It would be interesting to see how these figures break down based on age. I would still venture to say that teenagers read less today than they did in days past, but hey, I could be wrong about that too.
