As we try our hardest to stay cool these hot summer days, a big portion of Albanians are, despite the abundance of time, not reading books.

Artan Drago, a bookstore seller says he has not sold a single book in 3 days while stressing that the act of surfing on the internet has declared a war on reading.

According to him, the economic situation in the country is also one of the consequences for the decreasing number of readers.

For many citizens, the low level of reading is shameful, and the main cause they say, again, is the internet.

Just a while back, INSTAT published data showing that 1 million Albanians did not read a single book in more than a year.
