Ayo, I read a statistic the other day from a 2007 study claiming that 25% of Americans had not read a book in the previous year. A year without a book – how sad! And even sadder: I’m sure a large number of those non-readers have simply been non-readers for life.
Well, I for one am glad that my favorite Brooklyn bookstore Word came out with a shirt to help spread the reading gospel to the world. The I’ve Read Books tee is v. v. soft, designed by Mike Fusco of M+E and only $20!
And if you want to make sure more people read books this year, check out Literacy Partners.
