From The Bookseller:
Nearly a third of people in the UK own an e-reader, with a further 15% planning to buy one in the next six months, a survey by media law firm Wiggin has found.
The company conducted an online survey in March which found that many particupants anticipated taking up e-reading in the near future and a third of those currently reading e-books download them illegally.
A spokesperson for Wiggin said: “E-reading is one of the UK’s fastest rising leisure activities—four in ten of those surveyed (40%) currently read e-books and of these 39% plan to up their digital reading in the next 12 months.”

Passive Guy admits a little skepticism about this survey, but he hopes it’s true (except for the piracy part).
