    Interesting. Would like to see the rest of the blue/green chart. It is cut off.

    To be honest, I believe one of the books each Dominican reports to have read is the Bible. Not that there is anything at all wrong with that, but I don't believe that is what is meant by having read a book in the past year.

    Did they make the survey at a mall near Libreria Cuesta store entrance or at an XYZ Drink?

    Access to books, other than textbooks is rather Socratic in this country. I have been in the majority of the public schools in Jarabacoa and I know of only two that have actual libraries with a decent assortment of children's books ....etc. Most of the newly graduated teachers that show up with a resume fail the Grade six/seven general knowledge test that my wife gives them. Very weak on history and Geography, with math a close second. The people that come from other professions to apply usually do much better.
