Over the years, reading has become a compulsory activity for any sensible human being. The current world does not allow for people with a phobia in reading. Children have been sentenced to over ten years in school just to read. Even in the remotest continents where technology is a hundred years behind that of the Western world, reading has been an integral part of those societies. But of course man can never be forced to do what he does not want. There is this popular saying ‘if you want to hide something from a black man, or an African, write it'. It sounds like Africans listen more than they read. In Africa, a sign that says ‘do not trespass' may not be respected unless it was accompanied by a person next to it, reading the sign for us. Africans are just so used to oral tradition that literate tradition is almost foreign. Uganda is a country in East Africa that seems to obey those rules of Africanness. This book examines the causes for the poor reading culture in Uganda and the possible solutions to that. The study should help rid out this poor habit both in educational institutions and at the public level, which appears to be the worst hit by it.
