At first, I thought this was BS! The new generation reads, a lot. Does not reading the classics in literature make you dumb? Well, the reading done online seems to be more about current trends, social networking and the like... Writing school papers turns into google search results copied and pasted, with little learning occurring in the process. Knowledge of history, civics, etc drops off precipitously in the process.... As does vocabulary! The more you read, the easier and faster it becomes. So, it's time to pick up and read more than a Harry Potter book every few years!
Interesting read for anyone who loves the online life!
