Among other notable findings is that readers of nonfiction, particularly in genres such as how-to, manuals and STM, prefer reading these ebooks on more traditional computers. "This possibly suggests the need to improve e-reading capabilities for non-linear ebook content," said Jo Henry, Global Director of Bowker Market Research, in a press release.
The findings are available for sale as a PDF summary and a complete data compendium. For more, visit bisg.org/publications/product.php?p=19&c=437.
We'll be speaking with the BISG's Len Vlahos later today for more about what this study means.
