The more things change

Breaking news: young people aren't behaving as their elders believe they should!

Shock, horror. Get out of town. Stone the crows. ORLY? YARLY!

This time it's college students - apparently they're reading too much STEPHANIE MEYER and not enough SERIOUS FICTION.
Warning: This article includes the phrase 'real novel for adults'.*

Sigh. Remind me again why we slave over all these fake books for kids.

*And the 'real novel', Khaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns, is apparently only being read by college students because it 'is the choice of a million splendid book clubs'.
Hooray for book clubs, right? Right? No, somehow this still feels like boo for students. Let us state for the record that we Onions are definitely pro-book clubs.

Here, here Onions!
And another cheer for Stephen King. Why do articles like this always have to mention him?
