READING HABITS OF STUDENTS IN HIGHER INSTITUTIONS: REFLECTIONS FROM ETHIOPIA

Abstract
Reading is an ingredient component of education, especially in the higher education. It is also influenced by a number of direct and indirect factors. The inclination to read is considered as an essential component in developing the spirit of inquiry. The changing socio-cultural situation and the increased influence of technology have significantly made an impact on the very habit and pattern of reading. In this context, the present study aimed to assess the reading habits of University students in Ethiopia. The participants of the study were selected from the University of Gondar. A descriptive survey design was employed. Purposive sampling was used to select the samples. A tool was developed and standardized through appropriate reliability and validity tests. Questionnaire and interview method were employed as data collection methods. Quantitative and qualitative techniques were used for data analysis. Results indicate that students' reading habit is very discouraging and many of the students do not have a good reading habit. Therefore, the major recommendation includes the strengthening of University libraries and the establishment of active reading clubs. The value and habit of reading must be inculcated among the students from the school levels.
