Your Man Friday’s Ideas: Reasons To Read
You would think reading needs no justification. Its value should be self-evident, but clearly it isn’t for many people. A large survey in 2012 revealed that one-quarter of Americans over the age of 16 hadn’t read even a single book of any kind during the previous year, even though the reported functional literacy rate is 99%. (They did watch an average of 1,500 hours of television.) Of course, I’m sure no one reading this posting needs to be inspired to read. That would be as silly as a recent billboard explaining how to get help in learning to read.
