The latest finding conducted from the population of over six years old in 2013 revealed that reading time has increased 13% from the last survey two years ago to 81.8%.
If taken into consideration the reading of the people in the country, Bangkok recorded the highest reading of 94.6%, followed by central and southern regions.
The reading time was 37 minutes a day or two minutes higher than the last survey.
On the survey of sources of reading, it was revealed that books and journals remain the top source, though it was 0.1% lower than the last survey.
However Internet remained the second source and increased 6% from last survey, followed by tablets and smart phones which also rose 0.3% and 1.8% respectively.
The largest group of readers is children, followed by youths and adults.
Home remains the place where the people have chosen to read, followed by private business places (coffee houses, restaurants), working places and educational places.
It was strange to find that educational places are less attractive for reading than private business places because private business places have better environmental atmosphere for reading.
