Book Club Members Outnumbered by Bird-Watchers

5.7 million Americans now belong to book clubs, compared to 5.8 million bird-watchers in our country.

ProQuest has released the Statistical Abstract of the United States 2013, taking over the annual volume of American demographics from the Census Bureau.

The New York Times had some key facts: “Liquor stores outnumber bookstores by three to one (the average household spent $100 annually on reading materials and $2,504 on other forms of entertainment). More Americans belong to a fantasy sports league (10.6 million) than to book clubs (5.7 million). Book club members are outnumbered by avid bird-watchers (5.8 million).” (Via Caitlin Shamberg)
