E-books are becoming very popular, and you may well expect that e-books are quickly adding nails in the coffins of the printed book and maybe killing our local library, especially with sales of e-readers like Nook and Kindle growing rapidly. But according to a report, even avid e-book readers still hold the printed book as sacred and still revert to buying the printed variety as much as ever. The report goes on to mention that 88% of those that read e-books also read printed books.
Compared to other book readers, they read more frequently , more likely to have bought their most recent book, arising from their search online as regards reading for pleasure, research, work or study. Interestingly, there were not major differences between tablet owners and non-owners when it came to the volume of books they say they had read in the previous 12 months.
