New study shows reading decrease among U.S. adults


The Pew Research Center released a new study that shows adults are not reading as much as they used to.

According to the study, 27 percent of U.S. adults say they didn’t read a book all of last year, not even part of one. 

That includes print, electronic books, and even audio books.

The survey also looked into who these non-readers are.

Those who did not attend college and those who make less than $30,000/year were less likely to pick up a book.

In comparison, nearly a decade ago only 19 percent of people said they had not read a book in the past year.
