Extra! Extra!

An Associated Press-Ipsos poll released today revealed that one in four adults read no books last year. The biggest readers were women and older people. Also, religious works and popular fiction were the top choices.

Don’t read all about it in the Freeman tomorrow.

Also, on Thursday, reporter Bonnie Langston will tell us about Molly Ahearn’s book, “Dutchess County Fair” in Life’s weekly book page. That page, as you might (not) know, also contains listings for the most requested books from libraries in the area and the best-selling hardcover books from independent book stores, which, of course, doesn’t mean people are reading.

So don’t read all about it, either.

(Yes, yes, I know the Freeman is not a book – but I also know that you read it, so there).
