Update: In July 2015 BookBrowse published a white paper, "Book Clubs in the USA" which updates and significantly expands on the infographic below. You can download a free copy of the whitepaper at bookbrowse.com/wp
Methodology in Brief: Questions 1-9 are based on a subset of data from our 2012 survey of 4043 visitors to BookBrowse who responded in a 10 day time frame. Out of these, 2650 were USA women aged 35 who claimed to read at least one book a month. Question 10 is based on similar surveys conducted since 2004.
The respondents are made up of regular visitors to BookBrowse, occasional visitors and first time visitors. The numbers are sufficiently robust that we can look at these different groups within the larger sample to check for biases. No significant differences were found between the responses of these different groups to book club related questions. So while the sample is limited to BookBrowse visitors it should also reflect, within a reasonable degree of confidence, the larger group as a whole (USA women aged 35+ who read at least one book each month, and are also online).
