Why did you buy a book bag?
In recent years, people have been buying book bags to store their books and magazines in the home.
Now, new research has found that people who use book bags are more likely to have their laptops stolen, the New York Times reports.
The study looked at data from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, which surveyed about 3,000 shoppers on whether they bought books or magazines at bookstores in the past year.
In total, 1,000 book bags were surveyed, with book bags accounted for nearly half of all purchases.
Researchers said the bags were not as secure as previous research, as people were not aware they could store their own belongings in the bags, according to the Times.
According to the study, the average book bag costs about $30, while a laptop bag costs $35.
Both the laptop and book bags contain cameras, fingerprint scanners, and other electronic devices, but the laptop bags are not always the most secure, according the Times report.
People who were asked about how secure their bags were in a survey found that they were much more likely than other people to be in trouble.
Forty-one percent of people said they were less likely to get into trouble if their bags did not have security features, and just 12 percent said they would be less likely if their bag did not.
People with books that were lost, stolen, or destroyed were less secure in their bags, with 26 percent of them saying they were not able to store personal items in their bag, the study found.
Those who had more bags in their homes were also less likely than others to have a laptop in their home, with 18 percent saying they could not store personal belongings in their laptop bag, according a separate study from the National Security Agency.
The book bags have become a popular way to store books in recent years because of the convenience and security features they offer.
A laptop bag can be loaded into a backpack and easily carried into a car, while the book bags offer a better level of security.
