It can be easy to get caught up in the latest news feeds and aggregation apps and forget about how the average American still accesses their news: through TV. A new Gallup poll shows that a little more than half of the US still stays informed through TV, compared to 27% who consume news online. Not surprisingly, print has plummeted to just 6-8% of those 64 or younger. Check out the full report for the comprehensive statistics.
Pew Research has published a new report comparing reading habits across different communities. The findings indicate that 14% of readers read both an ebook and printed book in the past year with urban dwellers preferring ebooks far more than rural participants. More surprising is the fact that 58% of Americans still have a library card. Check out the full study at your library for more insight.
