same problem bother me

The same problem bother me for long time that my son, a teenager, seems the information he get are from TV, and internet. Reading books is quite small part of his life.

I have tried to tell him how important to have a habit to love reading, love good books, so that I took him to book stores quite often. But, the books he bought are quite different from what I expected, for example, today, he bought "The Gunslinger", and "Warcraft--day of the dragon". I have not read those but seems to me those are another computer games.

I can't complain the time, I know for sure that my son knows the world more than what I knew when I was a teenager because he has much better access to different kind of sources. Good or bad, I don't know yet. But I don't like for sure is, the information and books that teenagers get are too many "fast food".

Quite embarissing is that I tried to have my son interest in China history, classics, but when he finally one day told me--Dad, I want to know the story of "Three States", what he asked me was not reading the book, but asked me to buy him a set of DVD, the TV shows, total 84 episods. Reading books is too tired, watching TV is kind of fun--sit beside fire place, put feet on coffee table, chips, and juice........oh, this is modern life.
