NOP World, a marketing research company, analyzed the global “media habits” of people, that is, how much time they spend watching TV, listening to the radio, on computers and on the Internet (for non-work-related reasons), and reading. Based on these data, we have compiled a rating of most reading countries in the world. The results will surprise you!

Bookvoed is not only bookstores selling children's literature and books for adults, it is also book clubs, cafes for book lovers, an online store, radio, as well as a unique service for printing books on demand - Print-on-demand.
