Infographic: “The DNA of a Successful Book”

October 19, 2012

Hiptype is a company that collects data from e-reader users. Based on their reseach, they’ve shared this infographic (click to enlarge) on reading habits, entitled “The DNA of a Successful Book:”

Observations that stood out to me:

  • 30% of people will have stopped reading by page 50 (so keep reading if you’re stuck on page 45)
  • Women are 50% more likely to finish a book than are men
  • Only 35% of peo­ple will fin­ish a book that is over 700 pages long
  • Over 82% of e-book readers live in cities. (Guess I’m in the under 12%)
