All students encounter various required reading assignments during the course of a school day in the different content areas. The adolescent's attention is also directed to hundreds of other pieces of reading matter which may not be recommended or suggested by teachers or parents. Some students at both the high school and university levels contend that they have no available time for engaging in wide reading since required reading and school activities consume most of their study and leisure-time hours.
