ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the result of the study regarding the personal reading among youth and adults. Definite progress has been made during recent decades in stimulating interest in reading among elementary school pupils. Inability to read was found to be a limiting factor in respect to amount of personal reading in which children and young people engage. The reports from the more mature readers indicated that the home is a vital influence in stimulating interests in cultural pursuits, including reading. The information secured showed that mature readers have acquired compelling motives for reading and centers of interest that lead to wide reading.
