Who said.

'A lot of interesting stuff on this list... I guess reading in America (and elsewhere) isn't dead yet!

But how many of us have friends and relatives who read little beyond the back of the cereal box?'

This list is for those of you out there whose main spot of reading is reading labels on your groceries. You never know what you might find on there.

Don't have a bag handy, but I've frequently seen the instruction "Do not use your microwave's popcorn button" on bags of microwave popcorn. Which is worrisome, as I'm sure the manual for a microwave with a popcorn button would say to use it for making microwave popcorn. So I'm stuck with my loyalties split between my microwave and my bag of popcorn. I think in the end I'd have to go with the microwave, as I have to keep up an ongoing relationship with it, while the popcorn will be eaten and gone.
