Blogger Life (#6): Why Don't People Like Reading? Discussion Post

This is a genuine question of mine: why don't people like reading? Obviously, you guys (my bookish blogger pals) love to read, but I'm talking about them. The people that ask us why we read, why we like reading, why we enjoy reading and then blogging about it.

Do you know how many times I get asked: "You like to read?" from a person in disbelief? And do you know how many times I hear said person say: "I don't have time" or "I don't like to read", even though said person can read a billion text messages or tweets?

I totally get the "I don't have time" excuse, because sometimes I don't have time to read. There are days where I do have time to just relax and read through as many books as my fangirl heart desires, and there are days when I don't have time and I just say "eff this, I'm reading!"

And then there are days when I just can read at all. Sometimes this can go for weeks. And it bothers me.

But what about those people that say "I don't like to read"? What do you think their deal is, and why do you think they don't like to read?

And most importantly, what do you think book bloggers can do to get more people to read? Share your thoughts bellow, I really do appreciate your opinion! This is a really important discussion that I need for a research project!
