USA Ranked 23rd in World for Time Spent Reading
You’ll find the chart of the number of hours spent reading per week by country at Galleycat (link below).
This is important information for the forward thinking author and publisher. For instance, do you pay attention to Amazon India much at all? Have you considered finding a way to translate your books into other languages? Kobo is in more countries, so we won’t be able to pretend the international book market is a static add-on forever.
The USA is still a huge market, of course. But there are other markets and they are growing.
PS Happy Independence Day to my American friends and readers. I hope those two groups are always in one circle on the Venn diagram.
