Share of study-related book readers in French-speaking Belgium 2016-2018, by format

Are e-books replacing printed books when it comes to studying? For readers living in the French-speaking parts of Belgium, Wallonia and Brussels, this might be the case.

In 2018, when it came to reading a book for studying purposes, e-books were favored. As a matter of fact, nearly one out of two students chose an e-book over a printed book. Although this may be true, in 2018, only seven percent of French-speaking Belgians read e-books exclusively. It is therefore unlikely that the students should desert the libraries any time soon.
