Young people, so often denigrated as readers, have never actually stopped reading. They simply read differently from previous generations. They surf, they zap, they read while listening to the walkman.* When they read a book, they are no longer entering a temple of culture, but enjoying one among many possible entertainment activities.
– Martyn Lyons
* The book I stole this quotation from was published in 2010. Walkman, Lyons? A for effort.
