On April 4 the Pew Internet and American Life Project released a report titled “The Rise of E-Reading.” (By the way this report marks the launch of a new section on the Pew site focused on libraries.) There is quite a lot of data in the report that is must reading for anyone with an interest in books, libraries, reading of all types of materials in all types of formats, devices, and the future. I think this data is the continuation of a discussion that we’ll have over and over again over the next few years about the role of devices in book reading and the world of libraries.
The following Storify covers some of the key points from the report.
