People Who Don't Read

Carlos García Gual, interviewed by José Andrés Rojo in El País (February 12, 2018; my translation):
Today students read very little. Outside of what is required, they know nothing. They spend a lot of time tethered to their mobile phones and have almost no time left to read.


People who don't read are people of very limited understanding: they live in the prison of the present.

Ahora los alumnos leen muy poco. Fuera de lo que es obligatorio, no saben nada. Pasan mucho tiempo dedicados al móvil y no les queda casi nada para leer.


La gente que no lee es gente de mentalidad muy reducida: viven en la prisión del presente.
