Two weeks ago I found this article on

The Journalist was complaining about a new report that found that 25% of Americans have not read a single book in the last 12 months.

The author goes on to describe American reading habits as depressing.

I am not sure what would happen to her if she knew about the reading habits of Jordanians, she would probably be dead from fatal depression by now and after that would spend an eternity rolling in her grave.

Just for the record, I read more than 22 books this year and I am stuck in the middle of another five.
