Not Polish?

Not Polish?

Six million people in Poland do not read at all. This means that the average Pole shares his country with six million illiterates who wish to push their bad tastes on everybody else. Unfortunately, we live in a world which is designed to fulfil their needs. Within the last year 58% of Poles did not read a single book. One in five did not read even one piece of writing. These people make do with knowledge delivered to them in the form of flashing TV images or internet memes. How can this be changed? “It would be good to associate literature with pleasure,” says Jacek Tomczuk, author of “Escape from Wisdom” (Ucieczka od mądrości), an article in which he attempts ro answer the question why Polish people do not read.
