Are there any recent (last 3-4 years) surveys of American reading habits?

Can you point me to recent surveys of reading habits in the United States? I'm hoping to find statistics from the last 3-4 years about anything from the average number of books read, time spent reading, digital reading, to whatever else you know about.

I've found the 2007 NEA report To Read or Not To Read
and a 2007 Associated Press
survey that gets cited a lot in my Google searches, but I'm hoping there's something more up-to-date out there.
I'd also really appreciate anyone who can point me to some data about digital literacy -- how much time Americans (especially students) spend online, how much estimated reading occurs online, and the like. Most of what I can find is from the pre-Facebook, smartphone, and ereader eras which I suspect have had a significant influence on digital reading habits. Has anyone done a study recently that addresses this?
Thanks for all your help!
