Study: In an E-book Era, Most Pastors Prefer Hard Copies of Books

A new report from Barna Group that examines the book buying and reading habits of pastors says most pastors still prefer to read hard copies of books despite an increase in the use of digital reading devices in recent years.

Nearly half of pastors now use a device that serves as an e-reader, an article containing highlights from the more than 80-page report states, and that number has nearly tripled in the last two years. But despite increasing e-book sales and decreasing print sales, more than half of pastors still prefer hardcover books to paper backs or e-books.

Pastors collectively purchase between 8 million and 13 million books per year, and each of them buys an average of 3.8 books each month. In comparison, only 29 percent of all American adults buy more than 10 books each year. ...

Scott, oh, oh, I bet there are scrolls hidden around your house! No, I have nothing against printed books, I have yet to find an ebook copy of the New King James Version (NKJV Bible), which has the marginal, or better put, collinear netes to it. Since I have a John MacArthur NKJV Bible, I really haven't been looking that hard. Sad to say, the alternate translations given in the notes are probably better than what is in the NKJV what slavishly follows the Textus Receptus in main body of the Bible. Oh, well, but I'm not hostile to the printed word -- on paper.

Totally agree Christopher, I consider myself an avid reader. I read between 25 and 40 books a year. One in five are ebooks. I am 54 years old. Maybe it's a young person's thing. I like my ereader, but would rather read a book.

The idea that people will stop using permanent paper books and switch to temporarily rented e-books seems to be more a figment of the media's imagination than anything else. The past few years have had a lot of hype, but sales numbers don't back it up.
