58% of the U.S. adult population never reads another book after high school. (Church Leader’s Intelligence Report; via Dr. Sam Lamerson)
Can you imagine never reading another book after high school? If you are a book reader, how would your life be different without books? If you do not read books, is there a reason why not? You are reading this, so I know that you are at least a blog reader. What is it about books that keeps you from reading them?
Note: According to the US Census Bureau, 27 percent of U.S. adults age 25 and over had a college degree in 2003. I am assuming that all 27% of them read at least one book after high school. (It’s hard to get through college without reading a book.) I wonder how many of them have read at least one book since graduating from college?
