Nearly a quarter of U.S. adults owns an e-reader, but tablets are growing faster: Pew

Pew released updated data Friday finding that 24 percent of American adults owns an e-reader, up from 19 percent in a November 2012 survey. For this report, Pew did phone surveys with 6,224 Americans ages 16 and older. Women are still more likely to own e-readers than men. In the same group, 35 percent of those surveyed owned a tablet, up from 25 percent in November 2012.

    When you consider the Kindle App is on many tablets, the line is pretty blurred now as to what is an eReader and a Tablet. Plus with Kindle Fire and Fire HD, eReaders are pretty much small tablets now.

    I think the whole definition of tablet and eReader is too blurred now to say whom owns what.
