Mashable came out with this infographic on reading habits a few days ago. I thought it was fascinating.
Here are some of the interesting statistics.
- Women are 50% more likely to finish a book than men.
- The most popular genre that men read is historical.
- 30% of people will have stopped reading by page 50. Yes. I have.
- Only 35% of people will finish a book that is over 700 pages long. Reminds me that I need to get back to that George Washington biography. I think I left off at page 162 out of 928.
