Read all about it

Here are some recent Kindle research findings on Australian reading habits.

On the list of 2023 resolutions for many Australians is a desire to read more.

New research from Amazon Kindle reveals 50% of Australians only read between one and five books in 2022, but 44% of the population intend to read more in 2023. This worthy resolution is led by Gen Z (those born between 1995 and 2010) who are the generation most eager to increase their reading – 61% intend to pick up more books this year. The raw data tables were pulled from a survey of 1000-plus people of the general population.
