We should all make time to read

Although we’ve learned in the past week not to believe in certain polling, perhaps it does work sometimes:

This school in the UK asked students and parents if they’d rather get rid of homework to give students more time to read, they agreed. A secondary school did the same thing:

homework-vs-reading

More on reading:

“Here’s my secret weapon: I read” (from Medium)

“All the US presidents’ reading lists” (from The Guardian)

President-elect Trump apparently does not read (from the Washington Post):

He has no time to read, he said: “I never have. I’m always busy doing a lot. Now I’m more busy, I guess, than ever before.”

Trump’s desk is piled high with magazines, nearly all of them with himself on their covers, and each morning, he reviews a pile of printouts of news articles about himself that his secretary delivers to his desk. But there are no shelves of books in his office, no computer on his desk.
