As written up in the Chronicle of Higher Ed, this finding is described as Survey Finds That Only Half of College Students Use E-Books. But the fact that 51% spend some time each week reading E-books, and almost 25% spend 1 hour/week or more strikes me as pretty high. After all, the 2006 NEA report To Read or Not to Read shows pretty low levels of reading overall. From the NEA report: a 2007 AP poll of adults found only 73% had read a book at all in the past year. According to the National Survey of Student Engagement, only 54% of college seniors are spending 11 hours/week or more “studying, reading, writing, doing homework”. So, 23% spending 1 hour/week or more reading E-books seems pretty high to me.
