Summary The Teen Reading in the Digital Era pilot study investigated Australian teenagers’ practice using traditional print and digital platformsfor long form recreational reading. Following Naomi Baron we used long form reading to refer to sustained, attentive reading of textsthat are around 2000 words in length or more. In practice this generally means books, longer fiction or non-fiction available in print ordigital formats. In the digital era, books and other long form narrative and informational texts can be accessed on a variety of platforms,including print, tablets, phones and dedicated eReading devices. The study, therefore, focused on how and where print books (pBooks),eBooks and other long form digital texts are sourced, whether by purchase, borrowing or sharing, and the geographic, economic andcultural factors that influence such choices.
