A new study found that 65% of Americans read a printed book last year, more than two times the number of people who read books or listen to them.
According to reports, the Pugh research center on Thursday released the report said that in the past 12 months, a total of 73% Americans read a book, of which the reading of the book is printed in the book, the book is the 28% reading, and the other is to listen to the recording books 14%. In addition, about 40% of Americans read only printed books, and only e-books are only about 6%.
The study also found that although many people like to use electronic readers, smart phones and tablet computers to read e-books, but still occupy the first printing books.
In addition, Americans read an average of 12 books a year. The number of women who read books accounted for 77%, while men were about 68%. Women prefer to read printed books than men, but men and women stay at the same level in reading books and listening to audio books.
