Although it is an overstatement to claim that we are the product of the books that we read, it is nonetheless true that we are strongly influenced by the books that we read (at least, those of us who read books are strongly influenced by them). Books have a lot to tell us, and we often form opinions on the basis of what we learn from books. People who read intelligent and sophisticated books are more likely to be intelligent and sophisticated people. People who read foolish books are often foolish people. Thus, you learn a lot about someone by knowing what kind of books they read.
It's hard to say. The United States currently has a literacy rate of 99.0%. However, that does not mean that 99.0% of people in the United States read books. What this means is that about 99% of people in the United States can read books.
The books get to us by leaving a paragraph on a cliff hanger which makes us want to read more.
We read books either for entertainment, to learn, or to increase our vocabulary. Reading lets us hear what authors have to say. Well, most of the time.
Many more people than one would expect read books in the US. You can go to cafes, schools, libraries, bus stops, trains, and airplanes and see people reading. More than a million books are sold each day. Reading from books are not dead yet. Some people prefer reading from books than from reading off computers. People can actually hold books, and they don't hurt your eyes like computers do. So to answer your question, quite a few read books. I'm sorry I can't give you an exact number, but I'm sure its in the millions.

Books are dangerous to people that don't want to think. Books contain ideas, and ideas can expand your mind, change your thinking, make you consider things that you never would have otherwise. What we read affects us, just like what we listen to or who we associate with. Books can corrupt us if we let them... they can also free us. Books are as powerful as the language contained in them, and they should be chosen, and considered, wisely.
