It’s very disheartening to see very few people actually reading these days. People’s attention spans are so short they couldn’t even read through a 5-minute article anymore. It’s like you automatically have to write tl;dr:’s if you intend to churn out a paragraph of decent length.
I mean sure, we all know how a picture is “worth a thousand words” ergo a video is probably worth a bajillion words, but I’m pretty sure people who don’t read not for lack of time or energy but simply for lack of motivation and a sense of value in how they consume written word is most likely missing out on the joys of literature.
And I don’t even mean classic literature. Even daily prose can be filled with awe-inspiring content that may well feed one’s mind, heart and soul.
But I guess there’s no going back. Nostalgia is a sad beeyotch.
Oh and before I forget: tl;dr: Just a random rant about how lazy (read: non) readers people have become.
