Looking forwards to trying some of these.
@dogbite The younger generation all proudly toot disorders that stop them from reading, mostly dyslexia, mild autism, depression etc. I have lots of nephews and nieces and none of them read for some ‘valid’ reason or another.
You can explain that a book is better than any film but it goes straight over their heads, like it is an old person thing or punishment.
One 18yr old nephew wants to be a construction project manager. He often stays here because I have lots of gadgets and still play games but I can not for the life of me get him to read, even Pratchett.
He watches YouTube, constantly. It could be a bloke talking about a business subject or how unjust the world is for an hour and he listens to it on his mobile while doing other things like gaming or trying to sleep.
These modern Youtubers have such an influence it is worrying sometimes when I hear them bleating away a ton of personal crap but maybe this is the new medium that our younger generation understand. They live in a mobile connected world where one friend says “Hey listen to this guy” and that’s it. The gospel spreads.
