reading, writing, and ...

A few years ago, the National Endowment for the Arts published a report on the number of Americans who read as a leisure activity.  The stats show a steady decline in reading for young people in the U.S., which means students are likely to have less and less exposure to literature of any kind before attending law school.  The report also gives interesting stats on how reading correlates with other leisure activities, including creative writing.
