According to the Pew Research survey, about a quarter of American adults did not read a book of any form in the past year.

The world of reading is changing. Readers today have more ways than ever to access books and stories – through audio books, e-readers, smartphones and tablets.

However, according to a Pew Research survey, a majority of American adults that read books find themselves reaching for traditional print books first. Perhaps the most surprising finding is that Millennials, aged 18 to 29, are more likely than older generations to have read a book in the past year.

This week on Noon Edition, our panelists discussed trends and changes to the reading landscape, the importance of reading, and the books they love.
