Teen reading habits

“In an effort to better understand the reading habits of teens and the positive impact of reading in a teenager’s life,StageofLife.com, a writing community for teens and college students, asked young adults from across the US to participate in its “Books and Teens” survey…”

Teen “statistics from the survey include: 

–34% of teens see their mothers reading more than their fathers, compared to just over 12% of teens who see their dads reading more. Nearly 30% of teens rarely see either of their parents reading 

–29.4% of teens use an eReader (Kindle, Nook, etc.) and 13.5% say they read on their mobile phones 

–The majority of teens (63.5%) buy printed books from big brand brick & mortar stores like Barnes & Noble 

–40.2% of teens have purchased a book online from web retailers like Amazon.com –1 out of 2 teens will buy an average of 2 books spending anywhere from $10 to $20 per month on books 

–3 out of 4 teens had a parent, teacher, church leader or other adult recommend or give an inspirational book to them in the last year. …

A surprising number of teens admitted that their book choice saved their lives as books acted as guides or crutches for support during particularly harsh moments.”
