Perhaps Reading Books Is an Aquired Taste

Surprising Book FactsThis is both frightening and sad.

The one stat here I find most shocking is the one that states: “42% of college grads never read another book after college.

It’s probably about right, though. In my family of seven children I think there are only two, maybe three of us who buy and read books on a regular basis.

I’m  pretty sure three of them may not even know the location of the nearest library.

When I was student teaching I had two students may have already quit reading, because they refused to write anything in class and never turned in any homework.

It was my great challenge to get them to write something, but all I ever got from either of them was a blank sheet of paper with their name on it.
