Cellphones, Not Books

The Telegraph has run an article about how a child is more likely to own a cell phone than a book, which is pretty sad indeed. Unless those children just take out books from the library and wouldn't that be wonderful? Fat chance.

As part of the latest study, the trust surveyed more than 17,000 schoolchildren aged seven to 16.

It found that 85.5 per cent of pupils had their own mobile phone, compared with 72.6 per cent who had their own books. Among children in Key Stage 2 – aged seven to 11 – 79.1 per cent had a mobile compared with 72.7 per cent who had access to books.
