A study surveyed 449 seniors and sophomores at North Ridgeville (Ohio) High School to determine their reading interests. The survey of 18 questions revealed the following findings: (1) favorite type of novel was horror; (2) favorite author was Stephen King; (3) favorite magazines were "Seventeen" and "Sports Illustrated"; (4) favorite type of literature was the short story; and (5) 42% of the students read one or more books a month. There was a significant relationship between reading frequency and other variables such as GPA, gender, or other reading variables. No significant relationship existed between reading frequency and other variables such as hours spent watching television or working, number of sports participations, or parents' reading frequency. The majority of students surveyed showed a positive attitude toward reading. (Ten tables of data are included; the survey instrument, and lists of favorite books, authors, and magazines are attached.) (Author/RS)
