Reading habits in Italy

Hello everyone,

Books can be your greatest companions whether you have already settled in Italy or are now planning your move. Are you an avid or occasional reader? We would like to know more about your reading habits.

What type of reading do you enjoy? Do you read novels, comics, magazines, newspapers, etc.?

Where do you purchase or borrow books in Italy (bookstores, online, library subscription, etc.)? Do you prefer digital reading?

Do you have an average budget devoted to reading in Italy? Do you buy books or pay a library membership fee?  Do you spend more or less than in your country of origin?

In what languages can you find the books that you usually read?

What books or magazines would generally be found on your bedside table?

Thanks for participating,


Kindle mostly. English. Some from an old Library account. Podcasts and YouTube though has replaced a lot of reading. Last book was I Loved You More by Tom Spanbauer, wonderful read.  I would love to have a library with a large English section. The library where I live is new and big and nice, but half a shelf of books in English.
