Just a little Bad News! It does not discourage me when I see only 13% of Americans say they didn’t read a book in 2017. It’s not an horrendously high number… though that additional 7% who say they’re “not sure” if they read a book are probably just too embarrassed to admit it, so we could round that number up to 20%. Well, even with that we could use a little work.
Here’s the Good News! Young people are reading more than anyone, which is good news; print books are more popular than eBooks, defying the predictions of the doomsday purveyors who predicted print would be dead by now; and six of the nine top-grossing authors of 2017 are American, for all of you keeping score at home.
Check it Out! The infographic also highlights the year’s top sellers, in both printed and eBook formats, the most popular books by state, and a listing of the most literate cities in the US. Is ours among them? Check out the infographic and find out.
Let’s work on it this year and maybe we can get our titles listed on 2019’s “Most Anticipated Books” list. Happy Reading!
