Fewer Americans Read Books

Disturbing news for those of us trying to get a new book recognized. A recent AP-Ipsos poll has found that 1 in 4 adults read NO books last year at all. A similar question in a 1999 poll found that only 1 in 10 didn't read a book. Non-readers tend to be older, less educated, lower income, minorities, live in rural areas and be less religious.

Hopefully people looking for better health are still reading books!
