1. T. Many children are influenced by TV and the Internet which entertain them.
2. F. Most people who surf the Internet look for news, films, music or communicating in social networks; When it comes to reading novels though, people still tend to read paper books.
3. T. It’s hard to say definitely. Not all of them do so. There are still many teenagers who are interested in literature, but most of them are either overloaded with school program, or simply don’t care.

I really enjoyed reading the article «Did Harry Potter Make Kids Better Readers?» in your newspaper of December 12 and tend to completely agree with it.
It is true that kids are reading less and that educators, librarians and newspapers cannot do much about it facing the competition from TV and the Internet. I would answer the author’s question, if the Harry Potters books are an exception, positively. The author is also right that regular reading can improve pupils’ academic results, but not one book a year.
Nevertheless, the reason I am writing to you is to suggest that your newspaper continue this research and maybe you will be able to come up with a solution of this problem, or give some advice to parents and teachers on how to make this problem less acute. And thanks for the interesting article.
With best regards,
