Booking Through Thursday: Statistics
There was a widely bruited-about statistic reported last week, stating that 1 in 4 Americans did not read a single book last year. Clearly, we don’t fall into that category, but . . . how many of our friends do? Do you have friends/family who read as much as you do? Or are you the only person you know who has a serious reading habit?
Hmmm. I would suspect that my friend C. reads even more than I do--she's the only other one at the library who keeps close tabs on the new book cart, she ILLs a lot, and she's much more inclined to stay up late finishing books than I am. She's not as obsessed with keeping track of what she's read as I am, though.
Otherwise I would suppose I have friends/family all along the continuum. Some don't read at all, some read on occasion, some belong to book clubs or pass books back and forth between friends with similar tastes, some read steadily but not obsessively.
