Re: ''BMA embraces Unesco book capital title'' (BP, April 22). 

Bangkok governor MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra hopes to have Bangkokians reading more. The BMA plans to add 20 community libraries per year to the current number of 116 in the city. According to one statistic, Thais now read on average just five books each year.

While that is discouraging enough, based on my observations during hours of riding mass transit in all its forms, I believe the real figure is much closer to zero.
