Here are a few horrifying stats from bookstatistics.com:
- 58% of the US adult population never reads another book after high school.
- 42% of college graduates never read another book.
- 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year.
- 70% of US adults have not been in a bookstore in the last five years.
To be fair, I don't go to bookstores often anymore, but I'm a Kindle guy. The rest of this stuff? So much for respondents inflating their answers to look smart...
