Ebooks yet to sound death knell for printed books in US: Study
Washington, Jan. 17 : Americans are reportedly still reading printed versions of books even as their electronic versions have seen more popularity, a new study has revealed.
A Pew study has found that Americans have been reading more ebooks as about 46 percent of them now own a tablet or e-reader of some kind, but they haven't completely replaced the traditional hard copy versions.
According to The Verge, the percentage of American adults who read ebooks has grown to 28 percent, up from 23 percent at the end of 2012 and seven in 10 adults read print and electronic books simultaneously.
The study found that only 4 percent of people were 'ebook only' readers, and about 76 percent of adults read a book in some format in the last 12 months.
