Report Finds More Americans Are Reading

More American adults are reading according to a new report.

According to the national endowment for the arts, more than half of American adults read a piece of literature in 2008. That's up from 46-point-seven percent in 2007.

However, the report also said that while more adults are reading, almost half of them were forced to read by an employer or teacher.

    That is because people are getting their cable and internet cut off, not going to blockbuster, but going to the library to check out books because it is one of the few things that is still free
