The American Public Can’t Name a Single Book

Thanks to Pew Research, we know that the average American adult reads twelve books a year. That’s pretty unideal, but the statistics get worse: almost a quarter of adults won’t read a book at all this year. But they must know of books, right?   This past Thursday, Jimmy Kimmel sent his people to the street to ask people to “name a book.” Seriously. But many people couldn’t even name a book! Watch for yourself, but be warned, it’s hard to swallow.        Via Imgur     Featured Image Via  Fortune.
