So I'm puzzled and deeply worried by the results of last month's AP/CNN Poll that indicated 27% of Americans did not read any books last year.
Not. One. Book.
The article also states that even among the Americans who DO read, the average American only reads something like 4 books a year.
What the hell is wrong with people? I mean, I work something like a million hours a week, I have a family and a house to look after. But I still read 15 or 20 books a year and I wish I could read more.
So I have a question for my loyal cadre of 2.7 readers: What's on your night stand (or in your bathroom, or wherever you keep your reading material), and how many books do you think you have read in the last year?
And if you don't read books, what has taken the place of books in your life?
Because I'm having trouble wrapping my head around this.
