Reading Habits

This indeed looks bad for the city, but I can't be too critical when I wasn't all that ready for college level work back in the day.  Let's just say I was easily distracted.  If only I had a snazzy little video to pep me up for my classes.

But let's face it:  we don't make time for reading.  The mayor even admits it during the recent One City, One Book event.
When I asked him about the book during the author reception, he brought it up to me, pointed and read out the title, and told me, "This title says everything."
That's an answer from a non-reader.

For photo ops and happy sing-alongs we have time.  For books not so much.
