Read any good books this decade?

Update 2/17: as per Pharyngula, the stats I quoted below are of somewhat dubious origin and should be taken with (at least) a grain of salt…

Today I read a blog article that quoted some truly frightening statistics:

– 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year.
– 70% of US adults have not been in a bookstore in the last five years.
– 58% of the US adult population never reads another book after high school.
