Country’s Readership

Before looking at the list I was hoping the US made at least the top ten. But we didn’t. We are way down at # 23 out of 30. It measured by how many hours a week are spent reading.

According to the NOP World Culture Score Index, India is the country that reads the most, with over 10 hours per week. Thailand and China are second and third, with 9.24 and 8 hours per week respectively. Below you will find the list of the 30 countries that reads the most.

1. India — 10 hours, 42 minutes
2. Thailand — 9:24
3. China — 8:00
4. Philippines — 7:36
5. Egypt — 7:30
6. Czech Republic — 7:24
7. Russia — 7:06
8. Sweden — 6:54
9. France — 6:54
10. Hungary — 6:48
11. Saudi Arabia — 6:48
12. Hong Kong — 6:42
13. Poland — 6:30
14. Venezuela — 6:24
15. South Africa — 6:18
16. Australia — 6:18
17. Indonesia — 6:00
18. Argentina — 5:54
19. Turkey — 5:54
20. Spain — 5:48
21. Canada — 5:48
22. Germany — 5:42
23. USA — 5:42
24. Italy — 5:36
25. Mexico — 5:30
26. U.K. — 5:18
27. Brazil — 5:12
28. Taiwan — 5:00
29. Japan — 4:06
30. Korea — 3:06

I do hope more people starts to read in the US than do so today. We have an aging population and reading has been proven to aid in mental health and help in children creativity.

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Truthfully, I’m frighteningly concerned about the generation born in the last twenty to twenty five years years. They can barely read anything requiring more than ten minutes or isn’t written for a two year old. No one else seemed to notice that we have too many young adults still struck in children’ literature. That’s not normal. Your reading material mature as you mature. I knew things were headed down hill when they stopped teaching cursive writing because it frustrated the children too greatly.

    By the way, printing your name on an application isn’t legally binding in many parts of the country nor the world. Whatever the company promised you they don’t have to carry it out if your name is printed on the supplicated and not signed.
