The Rise of E-Reading

The Pew Research Center has just issued a report, “The Rise of E-Reading”, based on a recent survey of Americans age 16 and older. Not surprisingly, e-reading in general and the use of e-readers in particular is increasing.

One interesting finding is that the average e-book reader has read 24 books in the last year, compared to an average of 15 books for a print-only reader. The survey also shows that readers of e-books read more frequently than print-only readers.

A good overview of the study can be found on the Pew website:
