According to a new report, e-reader ownership in the US is falling. 19% of adults in the US own a dedicated e-reader - down from 32% two years ago.
But people are still reading e-books - in fact a different report says that 27% of Americans have read an e-book in the past year up from 17% in 2011. This means that people are reading e-books, but not on dedicated e-readers but rather on other platforms (mostly tablets and smartphones, I guess).
I think that's a real shame. I personally find it very difficult to actually read on a tablet, smartphone or laptop, and I much rather use my E Ink Kindle e-reader for real reading. It's lighter, better on the eyes and has no distractions.
