When staying at home, what are our options for entertainment? One that came to mind would be reading books. During the pandemic, where a lot of us have plenty of extra time but reduced options for activities (specifically ones that require us going outdoors), alternative forms of entertainment might be required to fill the gap. So how many actually read – or started reading – during the pandemic?
Although the numbers are quite encouraging, with 77% claiming that they’ve read a book in the last 3 months, 80% of them are already used to reading books even before the pandemic, which means in general it’s just a continued habit. Also interesting to note how the most preferred reading material is novels, but magazines and newspapers are still within the top 5.
How about you? Have you been reading any books during the pandemic?
