”Reading is a springboard to your writing” : A study of reading habits of people who write (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this Master thesis is to analyse the interaction in between reading and writing based on young writers experience. My approach was to investigate how writers read literature and how they look upon their reading in relation to their own writing. Seven young people has been interviewed in this qualitative study, based a theory about their reading and reading habits. They were asked questions about reading habits and their view upon the connection between reading and their own writing. Previous studies of Swedes´ reading habits prove that relaxation and pleasure are the most common reasons for literary reading. This differs from the present study, where my findings shows that writing people, more than other, read literature, in the way people in general read non-fiction. That is with a purpose beyond the actual ”situation of reading”. These persons often describe even their fiction reading in terms of knowledge, orientation and information, which usually are purposes connected to reading non-fiction.
