Survey: 10% of Hungarians Read Books
More than half of the adult population in Hungary never or practically never buy books, Népszava reports, based on a recent representative poll conducted by Tárki.

The proportion of adult book readers dropped by 12% from the Tárki survey conducted in 2005.

Now apparently just one-tenth of the adult population reads books regularly.

Meanwhile, a separate questionnaire for committed readers found they read seven books a year on average.
