Pev needs his window space.
Also, we need bookshelves.
Belief in the rationality of humans has been a blank check for so much bullshit I tell you
apparently just growing up around books, even if they're not really read, predicts reading ability in later life. how i'd explain this is that if you're used to books, you're not going to be afraid of them, and so are more likely to learn how to use them. and making people afraid of books is precisely what the methods used to teach reading do, just as it is for mathematics. when you're punished for failing to immediately understand, it becomes safer to never try & make that part of your identity
if you're on social media, you already read more per day than almost anyone in any prior era of history. you don't have 'poor attention span', you're tired and you have depression, and it's not too hard for you, you've just convinced yourself to do it in the most difficult way possible. the first thing is to demystify the act of reading. the barrier you face here internalised classicism and the trauma of schooling
