Overall, 72% of the public read a book in any format in the past year: 65% read a print book, 25% read an e-book, and 20% listened to an audiobook.

Interestingly, young adults are not only more likely than any other age group to have read a book in the past year, they are also most likely to have read a print book.

Percent who have read any book (and a print book) in the past year – 2019
Aged 18 to 29: 81% (74%)
Aged 30 to 49: 72% (65%)
Aged 50 to 64: 67% (59%)
