Found this online the other day:
Americans adapt to e-reading, Pew study finds
Well, this certainly does not describe me. (Though if more than 1 in 5 Americans have read e-books, I guess that means about 4 in 5 haven't...and if 30% of Americans own e-reading devices, 70% don't.)
I like this part..."E-book readers say they are reading more." The averages given are 24 books for e-book readers in a year, and 15 for non-e-book readers. Well, let me ruin their averages a bit. I've easily read 60-65 books in the past year, NONE of them in electronic form. (My reviews to date have been posted since May 2011, I forget exactly how many there are now, but it's over 50. There are 3 out-of-genre books I've posted, as well, and when I started the blog, I was only reviewing new books that I read, though I read some older fantasy novels as well, which I did not post review for. Now I am reviewing every fantasy novel I read, but there are probably 4 or 5 that got missed during the transition.)
Notice I put the word "say" in italics in the previous paragraph. I wonder if people actually keep track of the books they read in a year? It's easy for me, because most of what I read gets reviewed on this blog. But I'll bet there are a good number of people who are buying more books, which may or may not actually get read. And because they're buying more books, they think they're reading more books.
Yeah, I guess I read SOME digital content, because I only get the New York Times on weekdays, since I'm a grad student with a pittance for a stipend. So I do look at the weekend editions online. But that's not a book, either.
Anyway, are you all e-readers or not? And how many books do you read in a year?
