Are #Canadians #reading their leisure time reading?

How do Canadians fill their leisure time? With reading, we hope. At Tech Forum 2016, BookNet’s Tim Middleton presented some of the findings gathered from a leisure time survey conducted this February, focusing specifically on Canadians who selected reading as one of their top two preferred past-times and what sort of insights we could gain from them.

But first, let’s look at the top leisure activities for Canadians:

Time spent on the internet dropped 4.8% since 2015, though it’s still #1, while time watching TV is seeing its renaissance: after dropping from 30% to 29% in 2015, it has resurged to 33.6% in 2016. As for reading? It’s sitting modestly at #4 in the roster of preferred leisure activities at 21.6%, followed by watching a movie (18.4%) to round out the top five.
