I can't really speak for the forum as a whole, but I can speak for me and my geeky and non geeky friends combined: no one (especially high schoolers) gives a shit about reading books. 1, maybe 2 of my friends read for fun. One of my friends read just about every Stephen King book he could get his hands on last summer. Since finishing that endeavor, he hasn't read since.I read Harry Potter, and seldom else.
Don't get me wrong, it's not that I dislike reading (forums, websites, magazines, etc), it's that I dislike reading books. They're really not compelling when compared to...fuck, about anything most geeks do with their spare time.
as you said it was very wacky.
My daughter is like Viga. She gets books assigned from school to read and it is like pulling teeth to get her to read them. The newestDiary of a Wimpy Kidcomes out and she reads it in an hour and a half.

As much as you guys are gonna hate to admit it, videogames, anime, manga/comics, school, commuting, work, sports, whatever other shit people do with their time, usually comes WAY before reading.
Maybe you are just reading shitty books.
That honestly saddens me.That frightens me more than it saddens me...
