Why Reading Matters

why reading mattersWelcome to Onlies.net! We’re pleased to be relaunching the site this fall, so stay tuned for more updates to come.

In case you don’t already know, our mission is to improve the average reading level across the US, and we’re committed to supporting English education, reading, and writing programs nationwide.

To kick off our new website, and in stead of putting up one of those cheesy ‘we’re working on it’ images, I thought I’d share a quick video about the important of reading, and why it matters in a digitally-focused, 21st century world.

As the documentary points out, even though we now live most of our lives in a hyper-connected world, and much of that time is spent consuming media of all forms, reading is just as important as ever, and it’s up to us to keep a strong tradition of reading and literature appreciation alive for future generations!

Check out this great exploration from the BBC, in the video below!
