Most popular books in each state in 2017

The end of the year is a great time for summaries and comparisons of all kinds. They are rarely presented in an infographic form, and that’s what makes the new visual from Global English Editing particularly interesting.

Each part of the visual is based on a different study or article, giving a comprehensive look at how Americans read nowadays. Basically, most interesting reading facts and figures revealed this year are included in this visual.
