43% of Americans 16 and over read an ebook or other long-form digital content in 2011. This includes magazines, journals, news articles, etc. in digital format on not only e-readers but also tablets and cell phones. In America, ownership of e-book readers (only e-readers, not including tablets, etc.) nearly doubled in just one month. But ti hasn’t become America’s #1 choice yet. 29% of American adults own a personal e-book device (tablet, reader, etc.). And only 21% of American adults (in 2012) had read an e-book in the past year. Printed books are still #1 for now, because 72% of American adults read a printed book in 2011.
