Do your kids read?

This article by Albert Mohler caught my eye. We are raising a generation that does not read. I'll leave it to you to check out the article but will add this quote from it:

Do our own young people read books? Do they know the pleasures of the solitary reading of a life-changing page? Have they ever lost themselves in a story, framed by their own imaginations rather than by digital images? Have they ever marked up a page, urgently engaged in a debate with the author? Can they even think of a book that has changed the way they see the world . . . or the Christian faith? If not, why not?
