Summer Reading #3: Airports

During a recent layover on B Concourse at Denver International Airport, I made a visual survey of how travelers spent their waiting time. I visited four gates where passengers were bound for Dallas, Santa Barbara, Toronto and Wichita plus a general waiting area in the middle of the concourse. Here is what I observed:

30.8% watched other people, talked to a companion, or slept
27.7% read a book
18.5% used a cell phone to talk, text, or play games
15.4% used a laptop computer
  4.6% wrote using pen and paper
  3.0% listened to audio devices
In addition, 9.0% used two or more devices at one time

Of those reading books, all held paperbacks. No Kindles or similar devices were in use.
