30% of Teens Only Read 1 to 2 Books a Year

March 3rd is World Book Day in the UK, and as part of World Book Day the survey company Opinion Matters polled 1,583 adults and 505 teenagers aged 13-18  on how and what they read. The survey was intended to find favorite teenage reads past and present.

One in ten adults reported that their favorite book when they were a teenager was The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole. And of course J.K. Rowling‘s Harry Potter series was the top of the poll of today’s teenagers with 30.5% naming it as a favorite. J.R.R. Tolkien‘s Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, George Orwell‘s 1984 and The Diary of Anne Frank were the only books on both lists.

And when it comes to active reading, 18.6% read a book a week while  almost a third of teenagers (30.1%) said they only read a couple of books a year.
