Interviewed 69 older adults in diverse settings about reading habits. Found high readers could be distinguished from low readers on the amount of time spent reading, the level of understanding of the material read, and the perception of change by the subjects in their reading ability. Found high readers described reading intentionally and valued it for its own sake. (Author/ABL)
