You know how you hear/read the wail “No one READS ANYMORE” and “Internet killed the book” and “People are shallow” and “We are a nation that doesn’t read” and “Young Generations Don’t Read” and all that hoopla about how we, Q8y’s and Arabs, hate the books SO MUCH that reading to us is like commiting a sin?
Well i have got news for you, if you think that, you are WRONG!
Yes you are wrong! For I have seen endless young people from all backgrounds and generations read books like they breathe air. I have seen blogger after blogger post about their favorite books or put up pictures of their vast collections. For many of us living in Q8 feel the ultimate joy when travelling and visiting a proper bookshop where we lose ourselves there, feeling sorry for not having a similar experience back home… and last but not least, the proof of how books i have put up for sale in the Garage Sale section of ChillPillBox.com , both Arabic and English, had flown in a wink and proved more successful than DVDs!
Do not insult our generations by the hating to read accusation. and don’t worry… the books are fine and not going anywhere any time soon.
