Reading is a subject of major importance. Educators are more concerned than ever about the reading being done by college students. Studies are being made from the following angles to determine what to read, how to read, when to read, and how much to read. It is an indispensible task for for every educated man or woman to perform.

This thesis is a report of a study of reading done by the summer school graduating class on Prairie view College campus, 1935.

The chief problem was to analyze reading done by the seniors and to offer incentive to stimulate a desire to do voluntary reading during leisure hours. The purpose of stimulating reading is to enlarge the vocabulary, to enrich the experience and to make full and ready men end women that the world needs most.
