Read a Book for Ten Minutes & Save Publishing

Author Sean Cummings has started a Facebook group with a practical way to save publishing. Cummings theorized that the industry could be salvaged if everyone made a habit of reading ten minutes before bedtime.

Here’s more information about the Facebook group: “If you’re reading this, we’re asking you to shut off the TV and computer, put away the Blackberry and iPhone, crawl into bed and spend ten minutes a night reading a book – just ten short minutes. Read what you like.”

What do you think? As of this writing, 62 Facebook users have hit the “like” button on the page. The author is also working on an official website.
