Reading Is More Than Just A Good Idea, It's the Law


Cite Judge Posner to your kids (gloss over the dictum point):

“A reader of unillustrated fiction completes the work in his mind; the reader of a comic book or the viewer of a movie is passive.  That is why kids lose a lot when they don’t read fiction, even when the movies and TV that they watch are aesthetically superior.”

from Gaiman v. McFarlane (Discussed above).
