How Brits Are Reading in 2021: Win An Amazon Tablet: Cartridge People World Book Day Competition

As part of World Book Day 2021, Cartridge People has been finding out more about the nation’s reading habits and how books are enjoyed in modern-day Britain.

From the most popluar children’s books to the literary works that inspired Oscar winners, we’ve put together the below infographic which also outlines a Cartridge People study* that found that:

  • One in five Brits now takes in a ‘book’ on a screen or e-reader
  • 41% of people in the UK spend less than an hour a week reading or listening to books
  • 11% of 18-34 year olds admitted to reading for more than 14 hours a week
  • 33% stated that they were reading more than they were in February 2020
  • One in 10 people in the 18-44 age group would now prefer to listen to an audiobook
  • Over 75% of women opt to read the book itself as opposed to a digital or audio version

Ever wanted to know what would take longer; watching Game Of Thrones or reading A Song Of Ice and Fire? Our World Book Day infographic will provide you with a host of information to mark the occasion in 2021.

*Study based on 1,000 people, carried out in February 2021. Dataset available on request.
