(PDF) Voluntary Leisure Reading Habits of Undergraduate Students: An Investigation - Christine Jothy RAJU
Brunei Darussalam Journal of Technology and Commerce. Volume 8 Number 1, December 2014

Centre for Communication, Teaching and Learning
Institut Teknologi Brunei. Negara Brunei Darussalam

Television, new media, pop culture and an endless stream of entertainment seem to provide instant gratification and take up most of the leisure time of students. While these are not negative pursuits, yet the simple joy of curling up with a good book is becoming an increasingly rare activity in one’s leisure time. Thus a programme was designed to improve, promote and strengthen the leisure reading habits of 106 undergraduates in Institute Teknologi Brunei over a period of twelve months. Data was obtained through reading schedules, questionnaires and unstructured interviews which examined if the participants read the chosen fiction or non-fiction literature beyond the classroom walls. 45.5% of the participants reported that they completed the book they started on and 21% even moved on to read another book. However, more than half of the participants professed that they read less on completion of the reading programme and when left unmonitored in the second term.
