Get Some Facts!

computer booksWell, that is if you consider survey results facts… a safer term might be information. A recent Pew Research Report suggests that “e-reading” is on the rise. I’ll confess I was a bit surprised to learn that 50% of Americans have a dedicated electronic device for reading (a tablet, Kindle, Nook, etc.). That seemed high. Also,”Overall, 76% of adults read a book in some format over the previous 12 months. The typical American adult read or listened to 5 books in the past year, and the average for all adults was 12 books.” What might be sad is that number hasn’t changed significantly over the past several years. One could hope that the electronic aspect would be increasing adult reading.
