Japanese readers spend the most on electronic books

Electronic books are gradually taking the place of print editions, but they’re more popular in some parts of the world than others.

U.K. readers will follow closely, with U.S. readers somewhere down the middle, spending an average of $US46 this year. Chinese readers will spend an average of only $US4.30 this year on electronic editions.
