Reading Habits From Around the World: INFOGRAPHIC

By Maryann Yin 

The team at FeelGood Contact Lenses has created an infographic to explore “How the World Reads.” The piece features references to highly renowned books such as 1984 by George Orwell, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, and The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Here’s more from the company blog post: “Bookworms have an insatiable passion for one reason or another. Some pick up books for personal enlightenment, entertainment, or professional growth. Some read to beat boredom, while others to enhance their vocabulary and communication skills. And the list of reasons why people read just goes on (counseling aid, brain exercise, virtual travel, etc.).”

We’ve embedded the full image below for you to explore further—what do you think? To learn more about the subject of reading, check out the following infographics: the “Summer of Reading,” the “Benefits of Reading,” and “Reading, the Road to Success.” (via Electric Literature)
