|Second-hand bookshops are very popular in the UK
Whenever I travel I see people reading something, books, magazines and novels. Why do people like reading so much?
The UK is well-known for its reading tradition. Some people like to buy books to read, others prefer to borrow books from the library.
Reading facilities are readily available throughout the country; every local community has at least one library that residents are entitled to use and it's free of charge.

But what has made the UK a reading nation? What is behind this reading tradition? Yang Li and Jo Reffin find out.
