Data and Infographic About the Average Canadian Digital Book Reader

From Booknet Canada:

Earlier this year, we surveyed 500 Canadians who read digital books to explore the usability of ebooks from a reader’s perspective. We shared some of our findings in this presentation at ebookcraft 2018, and now we’d like to dig even deeper into the data.

This data has been collected from consumer surveying only, so obviously there is some bias. First and foremost, we only collected data from those who are willing to answer surveys online. Secondly, we only surveyed Canadian ebook readers over the age of 18, so this data is not representative of Generation Z. These biases aside, the data still tells us a lot about the target market for ebooks.
