Children's Uptake on Ebooks Expected to Increase - study

Another surge in ebook reading is predicted
"Ebook readership in Canadian families is already high—41% of parents and 27% of teens have already adopted digital reading—and another surge in ebook reading is coming soon, predicts a newly released study by BookNet Canada. "Measuring Attitudes and Adoption of Digital Content for Kids and Teens", released today (Sept 16, 2013), reviews parents' and teens' attitudes towards reading and technology and examines how new behaviours and technologies are transforming the way families find, access, and consume stories."
