In order to help students absorb knowledge, schools often conduct reading activities. Thorough planning and strategies, however, are needed to insure the effect of reading promotions, and make them a deeply-rooted part of life. This study adopted the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to discuss the relevant factors in promoting reading activities in elementary schools, as well as how the reading activities should be pushed forward to increase students' interest in reading and help them form good reading habits. The results showed that there are three key success factors in promoting reading activities: (1) teachers' emphasis on and implementation of reading activities; (2) the reading habits of parents and other family members; (3) teachers' professional knowledge and skills in guiding the students to read.
