Did someone ask for e-reading stats?
21% of Americans over 18 have read an e-book in the past year.
Learning is the number one motivation – 26% of “why we read”.
15% read to escape reality and 12% for entertainment.
People who read e-books read more – an average of 24 books per year, compared to 15 books for old school book readers.
People who read e-books buy more books than non-e-readers (compared to borrowing).
I’m not going to list the bestsellers from this info graphic, because it doesn’t count iPad and that’s silly.
iPad is the number 1 in tablet marketshare and e-book sales.
Thanks to eBookFriendly.com for the snazzy graphic.
