If you want to read more, grab an e-reader.
The Pew Internet and American Life Project finds that people who use the electronic devices tend to read more than those who only use printed material. The typical e-book user read 24 books over the past year, while traditional book lovers only read 15.
Right now, about 28-percent of adults in the United States own at least one tablet or e-book reader. That doesn't factor in the the people who use e-reader apps on their phones or iPods.
A third of the people studied say they read more since turning to e-content. However, printed materials are still the preferred option for people who read to children or want to borrow and lend books.
