^I think format of the show is something different. It is possible what you’re saying but I see less chances with this particular show.

These folks don’t read books on a regular basis.

They were asked to name any book at all and I thought it was a bit depressing that no one could.

@flutherother I’m a big time reader, and I’m often at a loss for words when I’m put on the spot. Yesterday I was confronted by an extremely rude woman. It was so unexpected and bizarre that I was dumbfounded. I turned on my heel and left. Afterwards I thought of several appropriate things to say. I wish I could find her and tell her!

Not really surprised. Sad that they couldn’t name one…

I have to admit, I used to go through way more books, before I had a smart phone….....:(

I get caught up in articles, and YouTube, in time I used to spend reading….

I have two books waiting. I have had them for too long. I’m going to make an effort to knock them out…

Yes.. That’s true. Before smart phones people used to spend time on other activities which they aren’t nowadays. I’m not saying all but majority of them. I still try to read on Kindle as much I can.
