World Reading Habits in 2018 (Infographic)
We may be watching more Netflix than ever, but the world continued to read victoriously in 2018.
Global English Editing have compiled this mega infographic on world reading habits in 2018, following on from our 2017 edition. We show who read the most, what we read, as well as lots of other fascinating insights into the reading landscape.
As you’ll see, India, Thailand and China won gold, silver and bronze, respectively, for reading the most throughout the year. Go India!
However, America and Europe were no laggards. 74% of Americans have read a book in the past 12 months, and the average European spent $240 USD on reading material.
We’re reading about politics more than every before too. The most popular print book this year was Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff, although most European countries preferred Becoming by Michelle Obama.
And did you know that 7 of the 8 most borrowed books from Australian libraries this year were from the Harry Potter series?
