Abstract [en]

In her article "Views of the Internet Genreation on Reading Fiction. Discussions between young adults in focus groups" Skans Kersti Nilsson analyses young adults' (16-25 years old) reflections on the reading of literatrue, their reading of fiction in printed books as opposed to using other forms of media and format, and the benefit the reading of fiction is seen to give. In this investigation focus groups interviews have been chosen as a means of studying how conversations on the importance of reading fiction develop inside as well as outside school. The result shows that young adults here have been shown to have derived benefit from reading fictive literature, and they think this yields more than filmed fictive literature. Further, they do not prefer reading fictive literature in e-format as opposed to printed books. Finally, they think that reading fiction is important for self-insight and personality development.
