Watkins, Marley W.; Edwards, Vicki A.
Reading Improvement, v29 n4 p236-42 Win 1992
Relates children's extracurricular reading to their reading achievement scores to determine whether good readers read more and whether more frequent reading improved reading proficiency. Finds that preexisting reading proficiency and engagement in extracurricular reading both had significant effects on current reading achievement, although the effects of preexisting reading proficiency were considerably stronger.
