For John, BLUF: Are you holding down our numbers? Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
People age 65 and older more likely than younger people to read for personal interest
5 March 2018.
Here is the lede:
March 2 was Read Across America Day and, not coincidentally, the birthday of children’s author Dr. Seuss. This annual program aims to motivate children and teens to read. Let’s look at the most recent data on the reading habits of Americans. On an average day in 2016, 38.3 percent of people age 65 and older read for personal interest. That was a larger percentage than any other age group. By comparison, 9.4 percent of people ages 15 to 24 read for personal interest on an average day in 2016.
So, is this because we have entered the age of on-line games or is this a natural progression as people age?
