Wow. This is a really great article. Are kids reading any more? AT ALL? Looks like the answer is NO. This is bad for the future of world… Nobody believes me when I tell them how many books I’ve read. For a span of about 14 years, I checked out 15 books every 2 weeks like clockwork, and read most all of these. Yes, I read fast and like any skill, I started reading faster and faster over the years. My mom heavily influenced me on this as she always had a book she was reading while I was growing up. When my grandfather (my mom’s dad) died, he had 20,000 books in his house and he had read all of these! Most of these books were donated to start a local library near D.C. Maybe it is in my genes, but I love to read!
