More millennials read a book last year than older Americans, proving the Internet hasn’t ruined everything

According to a new Pew study, knowledge and the written word can’t be so easily defeated. Despite embracing technology more than their elders, the study found that millennials were more likely to have read a book, either in digital form or on dead trees, in the past year than Americans over 30. Even more surprising is the fact that more young people believe there is important information that can’t be found on the Internet than their forebears.

Alright all you slacker Gen-Xers and Baby Boomers - pick up a book! You’re making us look bad! 

I wonder if it’s because the people over 30 have kids?
