Do America’s Reading Habits Explain Today’s Lack of Clear Thinking?

Ah! It’s a lovely Friday evening. You’ve had a successful work week and now it’s time to have some quiet relaxation. You have a book on the coffee table you’ve been wanting to delve into—but first, a quick glance at social media is in order.

Several hours and several videos later, you realize it’s time to head for bed, which you do, hating yourself all the way for having wasted the little time you had to exercise your mind through reading.

I’ll be the first to raise my hand and confess to having done the above—more times than I care to admit. And unless I miss my guess, I’m not alone in this folly.
