Reading statistics

Just read an interesting article complete with statistics about how many Americans read. Folks, the news isn't good. I guess it's not surprising that reading has fallen in favor as entertainment. What is surprising is what it said about blogs.

We denizens of the net think everyone surfs from blog to blog, but apparently that's not true. According to the study done by the American Library Association, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Pew Internet and American Life Project, only 27% of Americans with internet access read blogs. Compare this to the percentage of American internet users who don't know what a blog is--62%. Whoa.

There's your reality check. Don't spend it all in one place.
