42% of College Graduates Never Read Another Book


Reading has always been a big part of education since...well...there was stuff to read. And if you’re like most folks, you probably think that the more educated you are, the more likely you are to love reading.

You’re probably wrong.

According to statistics collected by The Jenkins Group, going to college doesn’t necessarily make you a bookworm. In fact, it turns out that 42% of people who graduate from college never read another book on their own! And the picture’s even more bleak if you look at Americans as a whole: fully 80% of US families didn’t buy or read a book in the previous year!

Why so little reading? Nobody knows. But take some advice from us: don’t be one of those people!
