Digital Book World: Pew: Print Books Still More Popular Than Ebooks and Audiobooks

Sixty-five percent of Americans have read a print book in the last year, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center, more than double the share that has read an ebook (28 percent) or listened to an audiobook (14 percent).

Many ebook readers are not using e-readers, according to the survey, opting instead for multipurpose devices, like tablets and smartphones; the share of ebook readers using tablets has more than tripled since 2011, and the number of ebook readers using smartphones has more than doubled over that time.
