We thought their noses were buried in YouTube. Turns out, Gen Y is reading books, and more so than their elders. A Pew Research study shows 88 percent of Americans ages 16 to 29 read a book in the past year, compared with 79 percent of those age 30 and older. And the young’uns who read at least one book typically read 10 books a year, with about 43 percent reading books daily. It seems one shouldn’t judge a generation by its cover.
