Book boggles

I'm not a huge fan of infographics, the big chunks of text and imagery that are given out in exchange for showing an advertising slogan, but as an author I couldn't resist one about the consumption of books.

Just a couple of provisos: although it's labelled 'This is how we read in the UK' the Kindle statistics are for the world/US (and, of course, refer to the reader device, not to Kindle ebooks which can be read on a much wider range of tablets etc). The other point I'd make is that though the producers get a gold star for listing sources, two of those are The Stylist, which I wouldn't necessarily regard as a beacon of quantitive journalism.
