Found via NPR: "A study finds that in 2002, only 52 percent of America's young adults read a book voluntarily." (This is referring to the latest NEA reading study.)

I really doubt they're all reading The Road to Reality in time with Vogon, who probably will take a year to finish it because it's dense. (No bets on how long it would take me, lacking an equally deep mathematical background.) Also: a book? Singular? I read that a week. Now. When I say I'm hardly reading anymore. Cheese and rice.

I know. I am always amazed that people do not take the time to read. It is like breathing for me. I am just stunned when people say they do not like it.

I'm equally astounded.

I do know a lot of people who are inclined to read but don't do it much who say they don't have time to read. My feeling has always been that I make time to read. Certainly sometimes there's no time to be made, but it's like anything else. If you say you don't have time, you won't.
