Reading And Buying Books For Pleasure – 2005 National Survey

Executive Summary – Reading And Buying Books For Pleasure – 2005 National Survey

Here’s a nifty survey examining the reading behaviour of Canadians. It’s interesting to see that most of us like to read. It’s also interesting to note that it appears that time spent reading on the computer does not diminish other reading time (or at least that’s how I read that section).

I also wonder about this:

“Thirty-seven per cent of respondents accessed the Internet during the last 12 months in order to find books or information about books.”

I wonder if all those respondents were able to find what they wanted to. Although Amazon does seem to do a pretty good job with their records, but not with their helpful suggestions (at least not in my case).
