Why Don't Kids Read Books? Hint--It's Not Technology

Not to keep you in suspense, Jordan Shapiro at Forbes says, Kids Don't Read Books Because Parents Don't Read Books. His point is that while technology so often gets dumped on for distracting young people from reading, seeing the adults around them not reading is a greater factor. A very interesting piece.

You know what else is interesting? The comments after Shapiro's column. Not every commenter was as taken with this work as I was.
