"To be honest" where are you getting your statistics for "most" and your definition for "YA level?"
This sounds like just the kind of insulting attitude this thread is complaining about in the article.
Be more concerned with the 20% of adults worldwide who are illiterate rather than bashing "most" of the people in a country with a very high literacy rate and a huge book-reading market.
BTW, I didn't read past the first page of this thread, so forgive me if it's been addressed, but in reading the quotes fromt he NYT article...c'mon...surely he's joking.
