Is there a future for books?

A study of the reading habits of German produced some interesting results, e.g.

  • people spending much time on the Web read more books than others and vice-versa
  • people who read a lot spend more time reading than they did in the past (for which I couldn’t find a definition), while people who read little indicated they read even less, i.e. the gap between the «information rich» and the «information poor» is widening.
  • Harry Potter – not surprisingly – has a great effect on reading. Kids who read Harry Potter read significantly more books than those who don’t read this series.

The study (in German): PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Haben Bücher eine Zukunft? found on Infobib.
