How did the print revolution influence the reading habit of the people of Europe?

Answer :

Due to the print revolution the reading habit of the public increased, as books were now less costly. This was because the time and labour required to produce a book came down, and multiple copies could be produced with greater ease. Books flooded the market, and were easily available for the public. Before printed books flooded the markets the common people used to gather in Public places and books were read out to them. They heard sacred texts read out, ballads recited, and folk tales narrated.
This listening culture turned to reading culture when books became cheaper.
