    Majority of online population reads books either daily or at least once a week

    A 17-country report just released by global market analysts, GfK, shows that 30 percent of the international online population read books “every day or most days”. This is lead by China at 36 percent, closely followed by Spain and the UK at 32 percent each. However, if the segment is widened to include both daily readers and those who read “at least once a week”, the international total rises to 59 percent, with China firmly in the lead (70 percent of its population), followed by Russia (59 percent) and Spain (57 percent).
