As a high school English teacher, I am constantly disheartened that so many of the students don’t read. Sadly, research shows that if 10 to 13-year-olds are not reading for pleasure, they are likely to lose the hard-wiring that would have kept them reading as adults. Reading after this age becomes an unnatural chore, affecting their ability to study at a tertiary level and perform well in the workplace.
