Young People Will Spend More On Ebooks In 2014

Posted at 11:23AM Saturday 15 Mar 2014

The youth of today are spending more on eBooks than ever before, but are resistant to the idea of a dedicated e-Reader. Instead, they are gravitating towards smartphones and tablets for their digital reading.

A new report from Voxburner surveyed 1,544 young adults, ranging from 16-24 in the United Kingdom. Apparently only 5% of young people expect to buy an e-Reader in the next 12 months. This is compared to the 24% of respondents who expect to buy a tablet and 40% who are expecting to upgrade their smartphone.
