Pew Research Center Survey on Reading Format Used

A survey finds that the share of Americans who have read a book in the last 12 months (three fourths) has remained largely unchanged since 2012. And when people reach for a book, it is much more likely to be a traditional print book than a digital product. Roughly two thirds of Americans have read a print book in the last year, more than double the share that has read an e-book (one fourth) and more than four times the share that has consumed book content via audio book (over a tenth). The study also found that more Americans read print books than either read e-books or listen to audio books
