why the people do not like to read the books?

parents can contribute a lot with this things. i'm still a teen yet my parents raised me up being friends with a book. i'm into the latest gadgets and technology yet i still have this passion in reading books. everyone can motivate others. even you, and everyone who commented here, just lend your friends a thin, interesting book, like what i have done before with my friends, we had this little reading party where a week or two before the party we read a certain book then talk about it and have some books in circulation, where after i finish reading this one i pass this to the other. it's just a sort of influencing everyone around you. :D

as a kid, i read over 200 books a year...i loved reading, it was my escape...now however, i am so busy, i am lucky to read 2-3 books a year! the world is changing too with the internet...instead of reading books we are reading blogs and web journals. I get my news online as well. something my school did was have a reading club - you read a book, wrote a review, and the person with the most at the end of they year got a gift certificate. i was a pretty big library dork and so won every year, naturally :) i tried to find my niece a christmas present of a book series i loved at her age - the babysitter's club - it is not even in print anymore!

I think they pick a book which is very diff from there interests and the are not able to carry on with the book for very long so i think they loose interest in reading reading habit should be cultured in a very nice way and should be started early in age
