Who says people don’t read anymore? As it stands, many users credit eBooks with stoking their love of reading. In a recent survey, as many as 41 percent of eReader owners said they now read more.
Makes sense, especially since people have so many ways to access printed works now. There’s definitely a following for dedicated eReaders like the Kindle, Nook or Sony Reader, not to mention other devices, such as the iPad, Fire, Galaxy Tab and others. These digital technologies not only offer a huge selection — without a back-breaking load to carry — but also make access and downloads ridiculously simple. No wonder eBook readers consumed a higher average of books over the past year than non eBook readers (at 24 vs. 15).
But paper versions aren’t totally dead quite yet. People still prefer them for particular activities — like reading to kids or sharing titles with friends. And as many as 88 percent of eBook consumers say they also read paper books. For more stats and comparisons, check out the infographic below.
