America's Facebook Generation Is Reading Strong : NPR

Young Americans are reading more than just status updates and 140-character tweets. A new study by the Pew Research Center shows that among 16- to 29-year-olds, 8 in 10 have read a book in the past year.

 

Key points:

Teens still like print books as well as e-books; they don't want one to go away, they like choice.

Teens like the idea of pre-loaded e-book readers that they can check out with a bunch of popular titles already on them.

They want their own space within a library; they're willing to use a library, but they want to be able to hang out there and be comfortable as well as use the materials available.
