Nobody Reads Anymore


Students tell me all the time that they don’t read. Yet they spend endless time parked in front of a computer. I know they’re not spending all that time watching YouTube or playing games.

Then there’s the fact that nearly every waking moment spent away from a computer is spent with their face buried in another electronic screen. They’re reading; they simply may not be reading anything of quality.
