World Book Day

book days

Who’s reading?….or not

Do Malaysians still only read two books a year? That was the sad count from the last official survey of local reading habits conducted 10 years ago. A quick survey conducted online at the star.com in the last two weeks reveals that the number hasn’t improved all that much. The largest percentage of almost 400 respondents -30% said they read only one to five books a year. Only 8% read more that 20 books in a year.

In conjunction with World Book day today, we present results

Why people read: – 60% for pleasure, 19% for inspiration , 15% for education and 5% for motivating.
