Adults These Days

June 30, 2013 | 1

According to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, 75% of Americans between the ages of 16 and 29 read at least one print book in the past year. The same can be said for only 64% of Americans aged 30 and older.

  1. I wish I could say this made me feel optimistic about the future of book-reading for younger generations, but the study doesn’t seem to exclude books read for school, and a great majority of Americans 16-29 would likely have been required to read multiple books for school assignments. I wonder how many young adults read books of their own volition/for fun regularly, electronically or in print. In my experience with my peers (I’m 24), very few. :(
