National Literacy Trust ebook survey

The National Literacy Trust have today published the results of a study they have been conducting in conjunction with RM Books looking at the effects on reading ability and attitude of using ebooks. Forty schools took part and the results are very interesting and informative, this being one of the first and largest studies to examine the impact of digital books on enjoyment of reading. The greatest change was seen in boys, with twice as many boys thinking reading was cool at the end of the project, rising from 34.4% before the start to 66.5% afterwards. The percentage of boys who felt that reading was difficult also dropped from 28% to 15.9%.
