ABSTRACT
The article reports on the study titled "Reading on the Rise," by the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts, which claims literary reading is increasing for the first time in the 26-year history of its survey in the U.S. The survey claimed the percentage of adults who read literature in 2008 was 51.7 percent, which is an increase from 42.8 percent in 2002. However, the findings were questioned due to holiday results from bookstores and deteriorating economic conditions.
