Librarians think about readers' format preferences (print, ebook, audiobook) a lot. We want to be sure that the library materials we purchase are in a format that works for our patrons. The latest Pew Research Center survey of Americans' reading habits reveals that print books continue to be the preferred format for the majority of readers. According to the study, "when people reach for a book, it is much more likely to be a traditional print book than a digital product. Fully 65% of Americans have read a print book in the last year, more than double the share that has read an e-book (28%) and more than four times the share that has consumed book content via audio book (14%)." Only 6 percent of Americans read books in digital-only format, while 38 percent read books exclusively in print.
