More than half of Germans read a print book at least once a week, while only 17 percent of the country’s citizens use movie streaming services or read e-books weekly, according to a new report.

However, the survey from YouGov also revealed that 89 percent of Germans still admit to watching television at least once a week. Here is more from The Local:

A total of 53 percent of Germans said they’d bought themselves a book over the last six months, while 38 percent said they’d done so as a gift for another person.

The research also found that only 13 percent of Germans said they could live without books.
