According to recent study from the Pew Research Center.
Almost 1 in 4 American has not read a book in the past year.
That actually seems high to me.
I bet it's even fewer than that.
So to find out, this afternoon,
We sent a team out to the street.
To ask pedestrians to name a book.
Any book.
Could be The Bible.
Could be "Fifty Shades of Gray."
All we wanted to know is "Can you name a book?"
And here is how that went.
Can you name a book?
Oh, yes.
Uh -- Uh -- I don't read, but --
But -- What's it called?
Can you name a book?
Uh --No.
Can you name a book?
Um -- Uh -- I don't read books.
Yeah, that's it.
A book?
"The Lion King."
The movie?
Yeah, the book.
You read the book "The Lion King."?
Let me just think.
Uh -- Hey, hold on, man.
Hold on, let me think, hold on.
Can we cut this out and do it again?
Can you name a book?
A book? Any book?
Um -- "The Jungle Book."
It's not a book, is it?
It's a movie.
"The Jungle Book."
Is it?
Are you sure?
Does -- Do magazines count?
No, Those wouldn't be books.
That's correct.
I can name "Moby Dick."
That's an artist.
He wrote a book called "Horse.", I liked that book.
Moby Dick was the author?
The book was "horse"?
That's what I said.
What was the last book you read?
Um -- Probably Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss, maybe.
I haven't read a book for like 12 years.
I'm drawing a blank.
I need books.
I am totally blanking out on books.
What do you do for a living?
I was a librarian.
All you have to do is pick up a book.
Cause when you know how to read
Adventures come to you.
That's right.
Thank you, Sha.
