Young and old differ on e-book preferences

Young and old differ on e-book preferences – Yahoo! News.

Readers under 30 prefer cellphones and computers. Those over 30 like dedicated devices such as the Kindle.

Shocker. Not.

Here’s the rest. It’s a AP release 10/23/12, no byline, BTW

Pew Research Center’s latest study focuses on young readers. Among e-book users surveyed, between ages 16-29, more than half read one on a desktop or laptop and around 40 percent use a cellphone. Around 25 percent used an e-reader. Among respondents 30 and older, 46 percent preferred e-readers, just 25 percent cellphones.

According to the report released Tuesday, teen readers were less likely to read an e-book than those immediately older. Around 12 percent of respondents aged 16-17 read an e-book over the past year, compared to 21 percent for ages 18-24 and 25 percent for ages 30-39.
