More Americans Now Reading Ebooks, New Pew Data Show

Posted at 7:20AM Friday 17 Jan 2014

A higher proportion of U.S. adults are reading ebooks than ever before, according to new data from the Pew Internet & American Life project.

Some 28% of Americans read an ebook last year, up from 23% in 2012. Even as ebooks rise in popularity, Americans are still reading print books. Even those who read ebooks also read print books: only 4% of readers are "ebook only," according to the data.
