There’s a certain stereotype about what books are sold or read during the summer.

A new survey, though, tosses those assumptions upside down.

OnePoll, on behalf of ThriftBooks, asked 2,000 respondents in the US about their summertime reading habits.

Over half of them — 56 percent — said they selected at least one book they thought would make them look smarter to other people.

Over a third — 36 percent — catch up on history during the summer.

And while almost half of respondents call summer their biggest reading season, they’re still pushing to add an extra half hour of book time each week this fall.

Here’s more from OnePoll on the survey’s findings re: reading habits and summer book selections.
