eReading Is Rising, But It’s Not Replacing Print: Pew Research

pew

Twenty-eight percent of adults in the U.S. had read an eBook by 2013, up from 23 percent in 2012, according to a new report from Pew Research.

The research also revealed that about seven in ten Americans reported reading a book in print, which was up four percentage points from 2012.  In addition, 14 percent of American adults reported that they had listened to an audiobook in 2013.

While eBook adoption is growing in the U.S. among adults, the study found that print reading is not being replaced by eBooks. Here is more from the Pew site: “Though e-books are rising in popularity, print remains the foundation of Americans’ reading habits. Most people who read e-books also read print books, and just 4% of readers are ‘e-book only.’ Audiobook listeners have the most diverse reading habits overall, while fewer print readers consume books in other formats.”
