One in four Americans say they read no books at all last year, says a new Associated Press – Ipsos poll. Here’s the story on CNN.com  (http://www.cnn.com/2007/LIVING/wayoflife/08/21/reading.ap/index.html?iref=newssearch). Someone does a poll like this every few years, and the outcome always seems to be written up in a depressing way. I’m sure we’ve all heard that book sales haven’t been growing for a while. But library circulation continues to be strong just about everywhere, so I’m not too worried.
