Surprising Book Facts

So a friend posted this on Facebook (which means that I’m not sure whether it’s 100% true or not) and I think it is really curious:

I find the most surprising of these to be the 42% of college graduates never read another book and that 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year. I am taking that to mean that no one in the family read a book. That is shocking to me. I really hope that’s not true.

This is why I donated to the book drive at my local elementary school. And why I buy my friends books when they have children. Who needs another plastic toy?!
