I have written here once about my annoyance with the title of the video "Why should you read Ulysses". Today I looked at the TED-Ed Youtube channel, and saw several other "Why should you read" videos. Why should you read One hundred years of solitude. Why should you read Handmaid’s Tale. Why should you read War and Peace. And so on. Curiously, literature is the only topic (at least as far as I noticed) that had the videos with this normative formula in their title — "why you should". Other videos do not nudge the viewer to do anything (perhaps the titles that come closest are "Can you solve riddle/puzzle X").
