do you think that people and mainly childrends nowadays are largely addicted to electronic media like television, computer and internet, and we seldom see a child reading books. Reading is a good way of developing the concentration apart from being a good hobby.It is high time we highlight its importance and encourage more people to have this habit.

Yes almost all the people dont want to read, even the newspaper they dont want to read it.When I was in High school i dont read books regularly, only my school books when i have assignment. Now i love reading a lot, because i found out that it helps a lot and you will learn many things. In our home i told to my children to read a lot of book to learn new words, but it seems they really not interested, they were interested in playing computer games. Maybe we can rally and ask people to include in their hobby-Reading.

yes i believe reading as a habit is dying especially in teh advanced communities.. reading books is boring compared to reading things on line, dont you think? but i still do read books cause i am a student. but more often, technology such as the computer and internet just makes reading a lot more fun.

Yes people almost dont want to read books, even a newspaper they dont want, they were busy in other things, children were busy in computer games rather thna reading a book, sometime even their school book. I always remind my children to read because i found out that it can help a lot. I think we should advice people to include the habit of reading as thier hobby.
