Sunday Book-Thought 30Posted: September 20, 2015
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.
