Ereader Ownership: Survey Says...

..there's been a substantial increase.

Link to November 30 Teleread post, "Ereader ownership triples in less than two years".

Excerpt:   During this time period, the skew between male and female eReader ownership has evened out. In the March-October 2009 survey period, 56% of eReader owners were male and 44% were women. The most recent data show that now 49% of eReader owners are male and 51% are women.

To avoid confusion with electronic tablets and other devices during its consumer surveys, GfK MRI describes eReaders thusly: “An electronic book reader is a portable, wireless reading device that allows you to download and read electronic books, magazines and newspapers. It is not a laptop, cell phone or PDA
