I missed this Harris Poll when it originally came out in December, but it says people lots of people still like reading as a pastime. As a matter of fact, 35% of those polled list reading as their favorite leisure activity. What surprised me is that reading is up 7% over 2003 and it is the first increase in the activity in five years.
Have things changed for you? Are you reading more?
