Some of us are buying more books

Supporting the anecdotal stories I get from those who have e-book readers (particularly kindles) comes a LEK survey that suggests that people with e-book readers not only read more, but buy more books. GigaOm reports:

The study by L.E.K. Consulting shows that while e-reader owners are still a relatively small proportion of the population, almost half of them say they are reading more books. And a large number of those books are new books — in other words, books they would not otherwise have bought or read.

I know my partner can’t stop herself buying kindle books because it’s so convenient (and relatively cheap) even though she doesn’t have a kindle – she uses the kindle app on her iphone.
