Dive into a novel for National Read a Book Day

Summer reading campaign

U.S. (KXAN) — Spend the day fighting off evil wizards or creating gold, battle a dragon, or time travel to find your long lost soul mate.

It’s National Read a Book Day, which means the possibilities for adventure are endless and all it takes is cracking open that new book you bought from Barnes and Noble that has been sitting on your desk for months.

A recent Pew survey found that print books are still more popular than digital books among Americans. The survey also found that 65 percent of Americans have read a print book in the last year. Only 28 percent read an E-Book.

Nearly four in ten Americans ready print books exclusively.
