Kids & Family Reading Report by Scholastic

The Kids & Family Reading Report, a national survey of children age 5-17 and their parents and conducted by Scholastic, released a new study today, where they find that 75% of kids age 5-17 all agree with the statement, “No matter what I can do online, I’ll always want to read books printed on paper.”

The 62% of kids surveyed say they prefer to read books printed on paper rather than on a computer or a handheld device.

They also found that kids who go online to extend the reading experience – by going to book or author websites or connecting with other readers – are more likely to read books for fun every day!

If this is true then someone else in the tech diaspora is wrong, What do you think?
