Do teenagers read as a hobbie?

There are so many different answer to this question. In my opinion, the correct answer is "Yes, they do". But, in this masochistic society, people only see what they want. There are a lot of reader-teenagers, in fact.

Firstly, bookshops are plenty of books specially dedicated from 12 to 18, of to many thematics: fantasy, love, horror, magic...

Secondly, teenagers have got too much time to spend in their hobbies, and, for a very big percent of world's teen population, read is one of their.

Thirdly... Only go to the cinema and see! Adaptations of teenagers books breaks the theatre every year: Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia and the newest Twilight. They break records of best-sellers and of "most viewed"! And all were books. Specially for teenagers.

In conclusion, teenagers read what they want when they want. So, "yes, they do" and "yes, I do".
