My annual book consumption must be off-setting a lot of American non-readers.

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.
