New research from the UK’s National Literacy Trust. They surveyed 34,910 young people aged eight to 16, and found…
* 39% of young people read daily using electronic devices including tablets and eReaders.
* Nearly all young people have access to a computer at home, and 4 out of 10 now own a tablet or a smartphone.
* 3 in 10 young people do not have a desk of their own.
* Screen reading is not always pleasant for long-form reading. Those who read only on-screen are three times less likely to “enjoy reading very much”.
