Over 50% of Americans haven’t read a book in 2022. Nearly 25% of adults have not read a book in 1-2 years. 11% haven’t read a book in 3-5 years. And 10% of US adults haven’t read at least 1 full book in the past 10 years.
But hey, TikTok and games and series!
Yes, the survey sample is a bit small — 2K, and the exclusion of audiobooks is weird. But I wouldn’t hold my breath for much rosier results after expanding these parameters.
Also… how many books have you read this year? 😉
