LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – It looks like the nostalgic trip to your local library may soon become history.

A new survey shows readers tastes are shifting to digital.

The survey conducted by Pew Internet Research Center Found that the percentage of Americans 16 and older who read e-books grew from 16 percent last year to 23 percent this year.

Those owning an e-book device or tablet jumped from 18 percent to 33 percent with Pew saying much of the increase came from the holiday rush.
