Can You Name a Book? ANY Book???

  • 添加 2018年05月18日
  • According to a recent study from the Pew Research Center, almost one in four Americans has not read a book in the past year. So to find out if that is true, we sent a team to the street to ask pedestrians to name a book, and here are the very sad results.

    I think the most reason people don't read as many books is because of how fast paced our society is and people don't have as much time. It's easier for people to watch a story to read one. I love books, but I mostly listen to them.

    I set a world record for 13-year-olds reading over 200 pieces of classical literature, in a college, or adult reading level in one year. (For those who don't know what that is, those are books with real words and no pictures. Resulting, with authors most commonly published books and others. Like, Charles Dickens, Margret Mitchell, George Orwell etc. Often written before the 1990's)
    Also, became the first person to read both Gone With the Wind and War and Peace in a two week period. Incase, you were wondering those are the two longest books in the WORLD!
    This is a huge disappointment to me.
