Unread books fill British bookshelves

The majority of books on British bookshelves never have their pages thumbed, a survey has revealed. Research from Lindeman’s wine suggests up to 70% of all household books remain unread, resulting in book ‘waste’ of 80 books per household. And a third of owners even admit they have no intention of reading their books. However, 40% of Brits have admitted to stacking their bookshelves with carefully selected titles that paint a more ‘favourable’ picture of their owners – over half (57%) prefer to fill their book cases with literary classics.
