 Women Prefer Reading Novels, Men Prefer to Watch Film Adaptation of Books

Men prefer to watch film adaptations of books than read the original novel, while women prefer reading the books, reveals a new poll.

The poll by OnePoll on 2,000 British men and women found that 75 percent of men would opt for the big screen version of a story, while 30 percent admitted to not picking up a book since they were at school, the BBC reported.

The poll also revealed that 63 percent of men did not read as much as they thought they should, while 46 percent saying they now read fewer books now than they did in the past, but one in five men also confessed to pretending they had read a specific title, in order to appear more intelligent.

33 percent of men said that they preferred to spend their spare time using the internet, while 30 percent engaged more with film and TV.

Sue Wilkinson, CEO of the Reading Agency said that they know reading is really important, so they have got to get more people in general, particularly men, to pick up a book.
