Americans are reading less. Yeeeeah

I just heard on NPR that reading numbers are down again.

Less and less Americans are reading. Study cited 58% of the college grads who read books don’t pass page 18.

This is great news for me other reader alike . As long as we’re willing to read and learn continuously we can’t help but become more valuable. If nothing else for our ability to learn.

I just wish the unemployment office required people on welfare to read to collect welfare checks.

  1. Eh, it’s only natural. The more technology there is, the less people will read.

    However, I find it interesting that most people, if you ask them, say “you know, I wish I read more books. I would really like to read more.”

    So why don’t they?

    Technology has made them lazy.

  2. Can technology make people lazy?

    I think there is a misconception about that. Most used example is kids can’t figure out 8×7=56 without calculator.

    I think people use technology as an excuse to be lazy. That’s different

    Thanks for the comment
