Macquarie University has published a report examining Australian book readers, the third and final stage of its three-year research project on Australia’s changing book industry.

The book readership stage of the research project surveyed just under 3000 Australians, and was conducted in partnership with the Australia Council for the Arts, which provided additional funding and collaboration.

As with the previous two stages of the research project, which examined how authors and publishers are responding to global change, this stage investigates how book readers are changing their reading habits as they adopt new technologies. In particular, the survey explores how the advent of ebooks, online book retailing and social media have affected the ways in which Australians interact with books and engage in reading.
