Abstract

Students in fourth, eighth, and twelfth grades of Eagle Grove Community Schools in Eagle Grove, Iowa, responded to a questionnaire seeking to ascertain where the students were and what time it was when they engaged in recreational reading. Responses were categorized by the researcher and analyzed by grade level and sex. Location categories, from the highest percentage of responses to the lowest inlcuded: "bedroom", "school", "living room", "kitchen", "other home", "outdoors", transportation", "library", "bathroom", "other buildings", and "don't read". Time period categories, from the highest percentage of responses to the lowest included: "evening", "school", "afternoon", "morning", "vacations", "qualified time periods", "meal times", "bored", and "don't read"". No single location or time period category received over a 40% response rate from the students.
