Print Reading Preferences

From College & Research Libraries News, October 2016:

“Print books continue to be more popular than e-books or audio books. Fully 65 percent of Americans have read a print book in the last year, more than double the share that has read an e-book (28 percent) and more than four times the share that has consumed book content via audio book (14 percent). Some 73 percent of Americans report that they have read at least one book (in any format) in the last year.” When reading e-books, more Americans are reading them on tablets and cellphones rather than dedicated e-readers.
