Poll: How often do you read a book?

Research to mark World Book Day found that half of children and young people said they enjoyed reading either “very much” or “quite a lot”.

HOW MANY BOOKS would you read in a year?

In 2015, a US study found that the average was one a month; in a 2019 study, the same researchers found that 27% of US adults hadn’t read a book in the past year. 

In 2019, data group Kantar reported that the average shopper bought 9 books, compared with 8 the year before.

So, considering it’s World Book Day, we’re asking: How often do you read? 


Poll Results:

More than 12 books a year (4661)
Less than 10 books a year (3329)
I don't really read books (2508)
10-12 books a year (2321)
