Abstract [en]

The aim of this Masters thesis is to investigate the factors that contribute to childrens feelings of enjoyment and wellbeing while reading pleasure reading. The research is founded on qualitative interviews with eight children aged between 9 and 12 years. In the review of the literature different theories of reading experiences are examined and the theory of flow is used to analyse and interpret childrens statements of reading experiences. The theory of flow has not been developed to investigate reading but aims to describe and explain when and how people experience happiness and joy. The results of this study reveal that many different factors influence childrens reading. Reading leading to experiences of happiness and wellbeing requires, among other things, exciting and interesting stories, the ability to enter into the story, understanding and opportunities to concentrate. The intention has also been to explore the childrens perception of the term pleasure reading läslust in order to investigate if the terms adequacy in describing the kind of reading that leads to feelings of delight and wellbeing. The analyses show that pleasure reading can be seen either as a will or as a willingness to read. Willingness implies an acceptance of reading as something to do, until something more interesting comes along. The will to read implies, on the other hand, a childs conscious longing and desire to read and can be directed towards a specific story or towards reading in general.
