Often we think of eBooks as being more portable – going on the road more than those heavy-to-lug paper door stoppers. In our Teen Reading pilot survey we asked Australian adolescents where they usually read eBooks. They could pick multiple locations, but guess what came top of the list for those mobile marvels? The bedroom and shared spaces at home!
Almost 90% of females picked the bedroom, with over 70% of boys selecting the same. For shared spaces at home, it was around 45% and 35% respectively. Girls seemed to like reading outdoors and on public transport more than boys, but of course, this doesn’t take into account the other activities they might choose to do in these places.
