My essential question

How have the popularity of books increased/decreased over the last 5 years?

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF:

What genera’s have been most popular over the last 5 years?

What age groups prefer these genera’s and what do other age groups prefer to read?

Do women read more or do men?

Profits made every day/week/moth by big named book companies

Has the amount of teen that were reading 5 years ago increased of decreased over the last 5 years?

How many books have become movies? Have they become more popular since the movie was release?

Do people read online books more than hand held books?
