Pew Survey Sees Uptick in E-book Devices and Readership

ON THE SMALL SCREEN: No surprises here. More e-book devices equals more e-book readers, according to a recent Pew survey. In the past year, the number of those 16 and older who read e-book increased from 16% to 23%. At the same time, those who read print books dipped from 72% to 67%. The survey, based on data gathered from October to November 2012, also breaks down readership by age, race/ethnicity, income, education level, and urban/rural locality. Public awareness of e-book lending in public libraries is also on the rise, from 24% to 31%. Those who actually borrowed one, however, remains small--5% (up from 3% last year).
