Digital Reading

A nascent market just a few years ago, e-readers are turning into big business. As Cecilia Kang of the Washington Post reports:

A fifth of American adults have read an electronic version of a book in the last year, a trend that is fueling a renewed love of reading, according to a new survey.

The portion of e-book readers among all American adults has increased to 21 percent from 17 percent between December and February, due in large part to a boom in tablet and e-reader sales this past holiday season.
