London, Mar 24 (ANI): After diamonds, it seems, books are girls BFFs (Best Friend Forever). A new study has found that females are more avid readers of books than men in fact, they cant put a book down once they begin it.

According to the UK survey of reading habits, which asked 2,000 adults, almost half of women are ”page turners” who finish a book soon after starting it compared to only 26 per cent of men, reports The Telegraph.

The research also found those who take a long time to read books and only managed one or two a year were twice as likely to be male than female.

The only likeness between He and She came among those who have two books on the bedside table at once and who start one book on the middle of reading another, switching easily. Twelve per cent of women were in this category exactly the same number as men.

A similar survey carried out in December found half of men and one third of woman have lied about what they have read to try and impress friends. (ANI)
