Reading – don’t stop

So how ignorant do YOU look?

Follow me on this – when you graduate college, you look back on HS grads as not well read enough. OK but let’s say you leave college and never read again. What do you think people that keep reading from then on for 10-50 years think of you college grads?

The Literacy Site has a chart that says these facts:

33% of HS grads never read another book the rest of their lives. 42% of college grads never read another book after college.
70% of US adults have not been in a bookstore the last five years. 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year.
