Pew – the Rise of E-Reading
Latest surveys from Pew in the US. As well as an increase in the number of adults who have read an e-book (from 17% to 21% from December to February), this nugget:
Those who read e-books read more books than those who don’t have the devices: The average reader of e-books says she has read 24 books (the mean number) in the past 12 months, compared with an average of 15 books by a non-e-book consumer.
Of course, p is still bigger than e, but the number of e-book readers is growing fast – and we read more 🙂
