Zimbabwe reads rolls out 2011 Reading Survey

25 Mar 2012

Zimbabwe reads published our annual  Is Zimbabwe Reading? – The 2011 Reading Survey today.

No nationwide survey of Zimbabwean reading levels or habits has been done in a decade. Accordingly, the actual state of the reading culture and available books must be estimated by indirect assessment.

This report by Zimbabwe reads is based on dozens of interviews with donor organizations, booksellers, publisherslibrarians, and educators in the last months of 2011.

The survey has the following sections:

1. Readers

2. General Book Situation

3. Book Acquisitions in 2011

4. Other Reading Material

5. 2011 General Assessment
