Mokhtari, Kouider; Reichard, Carla A.; Gardner, Anne
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v52 n7 p609-619 April 2009
How much time do college students spend reading for recreational and academic purposes? Do Internet and television use displace or interfere with reading time? In this study, we used an innovative time-diary survey method to explore whether the time students spend on the Internet or watching television displaces time that would be spent reading for academic or recreational purposes. (Contains 9 tables.)
