Abstract

This study has allowed us to observe, using the survey material produced in 1978 on the leisure time activities of Canadians, that the majority of the population, half of the Francophones and two-thirds of the Anglophones spend some of their leisure time on book reading. Actually, economic factors such as income or leisure time available are relatively less significant than cultural aspects, like level of education or reading motivation, in determining the demand for books in Canada.
