Fanfictionläsare: en studie om läsvanor

Fan fiction readers : a study about reading habits (English)
Abstract [en]

Today, literature is published in a wide variety of formats, it can be published digitally or in the more traditional paper format or as an audiobook. This thesis aims to take a closer look at fan fiction readers’ reading habits and motivations for reading, as group accustomed to using different kinds of formats for their reading. It does so by analyzing fifteen responses to an online survey using only open-ended questions. The survey was posted online on fan fiction sites and could be answered anonymously. The responses to the survey were analyzed using the four different reading motivations factors found by Nicola Schutte and John M. Malouff in a previous study. The answers to the online survey showed that most of the readers read daily and the most common format was the traditional paper book, though there were some readers who used other formats as well. The four motivations factors formulated by Schutte and Malouff were not easily found in the answers to the online survey. The result instead showed that most of the readers read to escape their daily life and to get news, information and to learn new things.
