This study deals with contemporary Polish reading culture. The authors focus on three areas: (1) research at the National Library, particularly in relation to digital reading; (2) the new Polish Encyclopedia of Books (Encyklopedia książki), a work of colossal size and scope, as well as the state of current thinking on books and their social circulation, which has been fixed for some time; and (3) some individual sources of inspiration from Polish reflections and discussions on reading in the digital age. The authors examine all three areas against the backdrop of the current Czech situation, while endeavouring to ascertain the sociological causes behind the current large decline, and focusing primarily on the substantial reduction in graduates from the 40– population. One part of the study also focuses on digital reading, i.e. on how it is developing and which sectors of the Polish readership it most involves. They conclude that although the Polish readership has succeeded in slightly reducing the internal socio-demographic threshold (i.e. with the operation of progressive internal inclusion), as a whole it is fallinginto social exclusion.
