Cukca not the reader, cukca - the writer … the Phrase of an old joke, alas, gets absolutely other sense. Once we were a part of the big country and concerned the most reading nation in the world. Now it is more and more said that read ever less. The capitalism shade under which wing we have appeared along with other former republics USSR, has at all averted rising generation from it, in their opinion, useless employment. What for to read about love if it show in all details yes on all TV to channels? What for to get acquainted with a classical detective when the reality where is more terrible? The same occurs and to other genres. But there was a novelty: гламур, fairy tales for adult fans to peep behind another's life. However, here again tendencies depressing: a text minimum, a maximum of illustrations. Visualisation - new, but already such widespread word. Recently in news has flown: Classical products have thought up to state in the reduced variant. In the form of comics, from good promptings. That the young young growth though in such kind, but has mastered classics. What for? I do not know. After all the main thing there at all a plot. Emotions, feelings, experiences. The idea is not new, have withdrawn at Americans. No, that to something good to learn.
For a long time it is proved, that reading - one of the major factors developing imagination, directly creative abilities influencing development. And it in a century when the mass product fades into the background and is paid all more low, and the leading part is taken away to individual work in which notorious creativity plays far not last role. Poor our children. After all will understand and realise, yes time will be already missed.
