Fighting (a)literacy

Startling numbers of literate people are choosing not to read books, magazines, and newspapers, according to a recent survey from the NDP Group and The Washington Post.
According to the study, in 1991 more than half of all Americans read for a half-hour or more every day. Now that number is down to 45%. The Post survey attributes the fast flow of
information available though the Web, movies, and TV has made reading less attractive.
