Abstract

In order to explore adolescent use of the media for leisure and, in particular, adolescent leisure reading of books, this study is a preliminary look at adolescent leisure and reading with a view towards comparing reading to other leisure practices that require mass, or popular, media forms and practices. Through a survey of many adolescents, this study seeks to measure the popularity of leisure reading compared to other leisure options, with a view toward contrasting female and male leisure reading pursuits.
