Isn't book reading actually up compared to a generation ago?
It's entirely possible that it's gone up from "almost nobody" to "nearly almost nobody".

it's gone up, thanks to literature such as TWILIGHT
Fell deeds awake. Now for wrath, now for ruin, and the red dawn.

I'm more optimistic about books. I think they can still have a massive influence on public knowledge and opinion. Recently some really good books have been near the top of the best-seller list. Hidden Figures, Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The Gene, Lab Girl. Stuff by Oliver Sacks, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ta-Nehisi Coates. These books have all been very influential, and I think one by Steve would be as well.
