Poll: Can you find the time to read?

Today is World Book Day – but how much do you read?


The yearly event encourages reading through a number of initiatives in primary and secondary schools in Ireland and around the world.

However, recent figures have shown a general decline in the sale of books internationally.

While most of us have cherished favourites from childhood, managing a busy work life and finding time to read books can be difficult to do.

So, do you manage to find the time to read? 

Poll Results:

I read when I can. (3315)
Yep, I speed-read a book a week. (929)
Reading? I own a television. (788)
