Books 'N TV -- TV 'N Books?
Here's an opinion piece from the Morning Call (PA) about how reading is affected (positively and negatively) by TV and other sources of information and entertainment. The author, RenÃ©e A. James, points out the findings in recent polls (including the NEA poll) regarding the decrease in the number of people who read independently, and concludes that perhaps there are ways to make TV a better ally of the written word. Included in her suggestions are a (at least one) reading channel on TV (and not just a show or two).
