Thoughts about reading

When I was a child I got interested in reading, books, politics, science and the world because all this topics where present in my home. Every morning a newspaper arrived at our home and was lying on the table, accessible for everyone. Every month additional magazines my parents subscribed to arrived and if I walked into the home office of my parents I found shelves of books about various topics.
This way I started to read the newspaper, the magazines got interested in various topics and started to read books.
I wonder if we lose these natural way of discovering all this stuff these days? My daily newspaper is a online subscription I read on my smartphone or tablet, same is true for the magazines I subscribed to. Regarding books, more and more books are ebooks which only exists in my ebook reader or as ebub file in a folder of my computer. social.schiessle.org/display/3

@bjoern I don't remember when I started reading, but my slightly younger brother wanted to play a narrative video game and was locked out of it by his lack of reading skills.

I was annoyed with him constantly requesting that I read it to him and that friction eventually led him to be motivated enough to do it himself.
