The Pew Research Center has released the results of study on the current reading habits of American citizens. The researchers conducted a phone survey with 1,520 participants to gather the data for this project.
The surveyors found that four out of ten Americans exclusively read from print books. Only 6% of those surveyed showed a preference for digital book reading.
According to this survey, “the share of Americans who have read a book in the last 12 months (73%) has remained largely unchanged since 2012. And when people reach for a book, it is much more likely to be a traditional print book than a digital product. Fully 65% of Americans have read a print book in the last year, more than double the share that has read an e-book (28%) and more than four times the share that has consumed book content via audio book (14%).” Click here to download a PDF copy of the full report.
