Assistant librarian Jessica Browne has observed that book reading is declining in this age of technology.

She stated this yesterday while encouraging students at the Grazettes Primary School in St Michael  to continue their habit  of reading.

The school has put  on a number of activities this week under  the theme Let’s  Celebrate Literacy.

Browne told the DAILY NATION that she had found that people were moving away from books and moving towards technology.  (ML)

Soooooo...what exactly is the problem here? Based on what the article says, reading has not declined - people just choose mediums other than books.

Reading is reading regardless of the medium used! I'm sure that my fellow Nation News ONLINE readers would agree.
