The sum spent on books and magazines seems small. Most families take at least one daily newspaper and a Sunday paper. They may take several weekly magazines, usually including the Radio Times( 《无线电节目报》). This gives them the weekly programmes of the B. B. C. The small sum spent on books does not mean that people do very little reading. Millions of cheap, paperbacked( 平装的)books are bought every month. There are good public libraries everywhere from which books may be borrowed. Over one million books are taken out from these libraries every week-day. In some homes, however, there is less serious reading now than there was fifty years ago. Many people prefer to listen to the radio, or look at films or television. Many people seem to prefer popular picture magazines to magazines that contain serious reading.
