Americans Are Reading
The NEA published a study this month (PDF file here) showing that reading rates in America are going up, for the first time in 25 years. The last two studies they did, in 2004 and 2007, were very pessimistic documents which reported a steady decline in reading. This time around, it seems they’ve takin online reading into account, surely something that’s gonna change the stats. Also, they’re mainly concerned with literary reading. Lots of other reading is going on. News, non-fiction, correspondence, blogs…the definition of reading, its domain if you will, is evolving.
