Pew Internet: E-Reading Rises as Device Ownership Jumps

Some interesting data points:

  • 28% of American adults read an e-book in the past year, a rise of 5% over the previous year.
  • Despite this, most Americans still read books in print; most who read e-books read in both formats. More people read print-only than e-book only.
  • 76% of adults read a book in some format in the past year.
  • 50% of adults have some sort of e-reading device, be it a tablet, a Kindle, or some other reader.
  • Demographically, women read more than men, blacks read more than whites or Hispanics, and 18-29 year olds read more than all other age groups. College graduates read more than those of other education levels.
  • Dedicated e-reading devices are becoming more common.
