50% of college students read E-books


As written up in the Chronicle of Higher Ed, this finding is described as Survey Finds That Only Half of College Students Use E-Books. But the fact that 50% of college students spend some time each week reading E-books, and almost 25% spend 1 hour/week or more strikes me as pretty high. After all, the 2006 NEA report To Read or Not to Read shows pretty low levels of reading overall. From the NEA report: a 2007 AP poll of adults found only 73% had read a book at all in the past year. According to the National Survey of Student Engagement, only 54% of college seniors are spending 11 hours/week or more "studying, reading, writing, doing homework". So, 23% spending 1 hour/week or more reading E-books seems pretty high to me.

Actually I can't say that's

Actually I can't say that's surprising. I know many students (including myself) who spend way more than 1 hour/week reading e-books. I'd always prefer reading an e-book than a paper books.

Best Viagra and Cialis Stores

You may be interested in cheap Viagra because you don't have lots of money to spend on buying prescription drugs like Viagra and Cialis which are really not cheap at all. One pill of Viagra can cost up to $10! That's if you buy Viagra from an online pharmacy (not a local one). On the other hand you can buy Cialis online even with no prescription for cheaper than Viagra because Cialis is less popular as ED drug and impotence medicine.
