Second-hand bookshops are very popular in the UK

 Whenever I travel I see people reading something, books, magazines and novels. Why do people like reading so much?
Katie, China

The UK is well-known for its reading tradition. Some people like to buy books to read, others prefer to borrow books from the library.

Reading facilities are readily available throughout the country; every local community has at least one library that residents are entitled to use and it's free of charge.

People seem to enjoy holding a book, magazine or a newspaper in their hands whenever they travel. No wonder that the UK is one of the biggest consumers of books worldwide.

But what has made the UK a reading nation? What is behind this reading tradition? Yang Li and Jo Reffin find out.
