Never Again. For the Rest of Their Lives.

I read this sad statistic today and tracked down at least one source in Wikipedia:

Literacy in the United States – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • 1/3 of high school graduates never read another book for the rest of their lives.
  • 42 percent of college graduates never read another book after college.
  • 80 percent of U.S. families did not buy or read a book last year.

Wow.  That’s not the way to live.

That said, I’d better get off the computer and back to my stack of unread books.

Top of the list today:

Being Wrong.
