Now, although Barnes and Nobles may not have the looming presence it did in the 90's, Amazon has replaced it as a purveyor of almost every book under the sun. Rare, used, brand spankin new...you name it, you got it. And if Amazon doesn't have it, you better believe that eBay or the Strand does! So, what country reads the most? Who would love these book tattoos the absolute best? The answer might surprise you. "According to the NOP World Culture Score Index, India is the country that reads the most, with over 10 hours per week. Thailand and China are second and third, with 9.24 and 8 hours per week respectively." Holy. Moly.
