Sounds like a good thing, but fewer than half of all American adults read ‘literature’ “according to“http://www.nea.gov/news/news04/ReadingAtRisk.html the US National Endowment for the Arts; down 20 milion (10 percent) in 20 years. bq. A “light” reader reads one to five books a year of any sort, including books that fall outside the definition of literature, for instance, “My Life” by Bill Clinton (which at 1,005 pages would count as four books). “Frequent” readers consume 12 to 49 books, and “avid” readers (4√àf the sample) more than 50 a year.
