This year I have read an average of a book a week – probably the happy result of both deciding to get more into reading for information and entertainment and the decision to read on my commute into downtown.
According to an AP poll, basically no American reads any books anymore. Well, the “typical person” claimed to have read four books, with half of respondents claiming to have read fewer and half claiming to have read more.
Since January 1, no joke, I’ve read 34 books. I’d post them all if I had an attractive web-friendly plugin that presented all of the titles in a multimedia format. If anyone happens to be aware of one of these let me know. I’m quite sure, though, that my voracious reading habits are probably part of the reason why child education drives me occasionally batty. Reading is part of what creates an educated population.
