Scales, Alice M.
Educational Gerontology, v22 n3 p215-27 Apr-May 1996
Reading and television preferences of 58 adults over 65 and 39 younger adults were compared. More younger people watched entertainment programs. More older blacks than whites read religious materials and watched TV for news; more older whites read leisure materials and viewed entertainment. More older people disliked TV violence. Overall, most subjects would rather watch TV than read. (SK)
