    It's probably becvause Europe is generally poorer than the US and they can't afford the Kindle e-reader.

      If you're poor you buy a kindle and you pirate your ebooks. If anything depending on how much you read, books can be quite more expensive than ebooks.

      But eBooks are far cheaper than physical books in 98% of cases.

    I'm not against technology in any way, I just dislike reading on a screen. It bores me and tires my eyes even with glasses made for this purpose.
    Paper is king.

      Kindle is much easier on the eyes than a traditional screen. You can also turn off the backlight entirely and use natural/artificial light instead.
      Still prefer paper though.

    The ebook answer is too high. Everything I see in Europe is cultural decline. I'm starting to hate that place.

    >UK: 25%
    >Germany: 32%
    Y'all calling France based, but literally a quarter of their population doesn't even read. It turns out Spain is fricking based. Only 4% of the population doesn't read.

      that's an interesting statistics. i'm guessing germans don't read because not much gets translated into german, while everythign gets transalted into spanish, as it's the second-largest market.

        The real answer is that Germans are honest while Spanish culture places a higher value on saving face than telling the truth.

          The numbers are true, the Spaniards spend more time reading, but the Germans spend more time working.
          That's why Germany is a richer country but Spain has a more potent literacy tradition.

      That's obviously not correct because some people have both read traditional books and ebooks, so there is considerable overlap between the two numbers.

      This is what happens when you talk about literature but skipped mathematics.

    It's annoying as someone learning French that it's very difficult to find good, annotated editions of French books on libgen
    With English I can find a penguin or oxford, even a norton edition easily, but with French I have to pray for a Flammarion

    The only reason I dont use ebooks more is because its hard to read in the sun with them. At night though ill usually boot up an ebook even if I have a physical copy

      While i find that quite funny, its kinda obvious that you get images of multiple men reading when you search for 'men reading'. Try 'man reading' instead, its the singular.
      But honestly i really want to buy myself an ereader because they are way more transportable, i will never have to spend money on a book again and i can have a whole library inside of a little disk, while nobody complains when i draw inside of my book
