Pew: One in Four American Adults Did Not Read a Book in the Past Year

“The Pew Research Center has published the results of its latest bi-annual survey into American reading habits.  A survey conducted in early January 2018 showed that the number of Americans reading books has essentially remained unchanged since 2012:

About three-quarters (74%) of Americans have read a book in the past 12 months in any format, a figure that has remained largely unchanged since 2012, according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted in January. Print books remain the most popular format for reading, with 67% of Americans having read a print book in the past year.

And while shares of print and e-book readers are similar to those from a survey conducted in 2016, there has been a modest but statistically significant increase in the share of Americans who read audiobooks, from 14% to 18%.”
