Bringing e-Readers Into the Discussion
As it turns out, book clubs are increasingly incorporating e-books into the mix. Though the 2011 survey found the "vast majority" of book club members still prefer the printed book, 25.5 percent reported using an e-reader in 2010, compared to 15.6 percent in 2009. The Amazon Kindle leads the way among e-reading book club members, with 59 percent owning Kindles. The Nook ranked second at 29 percent. Almost 20 percent read e-books on tablets.
