America’s non-readers.

This article contains some very interesting facts regarding the demographics of non-readers in America.

Most surprising is that 28% of those over age 50 haven’t read a book in the past year, compared to only 20% spanning the ages 18 to 49. But then again, if you’ve ever been to a nursing home then you know that the TVs are all on and the bookshelves are usually covered in a layer of undisturbed dust. Beside eyesight being an issue in the elderly, I don’t have an answer for why over a quarter of older Americans don’t read.

Overall, this article is worth the short read . . . unless, of course, you’re a non-reader.
