One in four Adults Say They Read No Books

"One in four adults say they read no books at all in the past year, according to an Associated Press-Ipsos poll released Tuesday. Analysts attribute the listlessness to competition from the Internet and other media, the unsteady economy and a well-established industry with limited opportunities for expansion. "

Am I shocked? No. I'm not even mildly surprised. When I hear some of the business, political or religious views of some people, I realize they haven't cracked open a book or even read a newspaper.
