How do Canadian reading habits measure up against American ones?

Booknet Canada has drawn an interesting comparison between Canadian readers and their counterparts to the south.

The non-profit organization conducted an online survey to find out how many Canadians had read books and in what form over the last year. In what they call, a "spirit of healthy competition," they also compared their results to an American study by the Pew Research Centre.

The Pew Research Centre study's methodology differs from BookNet, in that the American researchers conducted their survey over the phone. BookNet claims that this means the data will be skewed, but "shouldn't really impact the results that much...Think of it like comparing apples to a different kind of apples - close but not quite."
