E-book owners read 3 times as many books

GENEVA, SWTIZERLAND – The Pew Research Center in the US says that e-book consumers in 2011 read 24 books, compared to 15 for traditional paper book consumers. A survey carried out in December shows a clear trend towards more e-content being read, but also that Americans who read e-books are buying, rather than borrowing more books.
