Abstract [en]

For young people today the ability to read and interpret text seems to be of decreasing standard. This bachelor thesis is trying to find patterns among five different library patrons, all adults and most of them readers for life. The specific aims are, through their individual stories, to find out what made and helped them become readers of literature for enjoyment and pleasure. How do they look upon themselves as readers, how do they find their reading and finally which role does it play in their everyday lives. Five semi-structured interviews have been conducted in a qualitative way and been put through a thematic-narrative analysis. The avid readers of this study all read throughout their lives and almost right from the beginning read a lot. Not all of them have been read aloud for as children in their home-environment. In various ways they share their reading with others and they all find ways to incorporate their reading interest socially in their lives. Most of the avid readers are members of various reading communities and throughout the practice of reading they seem to have developed successful strategies and knowledge in finding new reading. The search for reading material is mostly done outside the physical library building. Important sources for reading suggestions are close friends, relatives and media. Most of them identify one specific grown up as important for getting further and helping them developing as readers. That person does not necessarily have to be a parent.
