A study done in late 2019 — but posted right as COVID-19 slammed much of the world — had some intriguing insights into British bookshelf organization.
Or, to be more accurate, the lack thereof.
YouGov surveyed nearly 2,000 Britons about some of their reading habits, and 43 percent said they don’t organize their books in any way.
The next-most common answer was by genre, at 23 percent, and then after that by size, at 21 percent.
YouGov also asked these respondents how many of their physical books they actually read and broke that information down by age.
Those results are far less surprising; you can read them on YouGov’s website.
