400,000 adults didn't read a book!

July 28, 2017

Well first of all let me clear that up... it's 400,00 adults didn't read a single book in 2016 in the country of New Zealand.  I immediately thought..Wow! That's a lot of people or adults... I looked up the total population of New Zealand in 2016 and found it was 4,693,000.  Out of that number about 76% were adults.  So... that's about less than 1% of adults that didn't read - per the article 88% of adults did read a book.  That's interesting.  


I wondered how many adults did or did not read a book in the USA.  I found from a Pew Research Study (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/11/23/who-doesnt-read-books-in-america/) that 26% of adults in the USA did not read a book in 2016.  That's a higher percentage than New Zealand.

I guess this is a great reminder to pick up a book and read!  Do not contribute to the non-reader club.
