This is an interesting topic – the practical reason we’re talking about this now is that you’re in a position to develop a passion for reading … Let’s bring in some facts from a study by the National Endowment for the Arts … It indicates that there are more readers who can read but don’t than we do reads who can’t read at all – yet we focus on those who can’t rather than encourage those that can to read more …
Here’s another fact – the percentage of Americans who can read anything for pleasure in the 25-44 year old age group has experienced a 10% decline in the past 5 years (To Read or Not to Read, 2011)
Why? Is the percentage of readers negatively affected by television, internet?
