Who are these non - book readers?. Several demographic traits correlate with - book reading, Pew Research Center surveys have find. For instance, adults with high school diploma or less are far more likely than those with bachelor's or advance degree to report not reading books in any format in 12 months before survey. Adults with lower levels of educational attainment are also among least likely to own smartphones, devices that saw substantial increase in usage for reading e - books from 2011 to 2016. Adults whose annual household income is 30 000 or less are more likely those living in households earning 75 000 or more year to be non - book readers. Hispanic and Black adults are more likely than whites to report not having read book in past 12 months. But there are differences between Hispanics born inside and outside United States: 56 of foreign - born Hispanics report not having read book, compared with 27 of Hispanics born in US. Although differences are less pronounced, non - book reading vary by gender, age and community type. Share Of Americans Who Report Not Reading Any Books In Past 12 Months Is Higher Today Than It Was Nearly Decade Ago, Though There Has Been Some Fluctuation Over This Time Period.

However, 2015 survey found that some of these same demographic groups acknowledge importance of libraries in their communities and for their families: Black and Hispanic adults, those in lower - income households and adults aged 30 and older were more likely to say that their local libraries serve them and their families Very well.
