More US young folk read hard copy books than older folk do?

Worth a look for all those interested in the habits of US teenagers or the future of libraries.

“Younger Americans—those ages 16-29—exhibit a fascinating mix of habits and preferences when it comes to reading, libraries, and technology. Almost all Americans under age 30 are online, and they are more likely than older patrons to use libraries’ computer and internet connections; however, they are also still closely bound to print, as three-quarters (75%) of younger Americans say they have read at least one book in print in the past year, compared with 64% of adults ages 30 and older.”

One of many fascinating insights from the recently released research by Pew in the US.   See http://libraries.pewinternet.org/2013/06/25/younger-americans-library-services/
