Your Call 081108 Summer Reading Picks

What are your summer reading picks? On the next Your Call, we will have a conversation about books and why it has become so difficult to get Americans reading more literature. According to National Endowment survey, fewer than half of Americans are reading literature and Americans between the ages 15 to 24 spend almost two hours a day watching TV, and only seven minutes reading. How much time do you spend reading books? And what are you reading now? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
