Reading skill is a cognitive process in which the words are perceived, given a meaning, comprehended and then interpreted. The last year in primary education is a critical period when this skill is changed into a habit. As reading attitudes are important for an individual throughout the life, it is necessary to determine according to which variables they differ in 8th grade students in primary education. In this sense, the aim of the study is to determine if the reading attitudes of 8th grade students in primary education differ according to various variables. Likert type attitude scale was used as a data collection tool in the research. According to research results, significant differences were identified in reading attitudes of students in terms of gender and internet use while there were no significant differences in terms of computer use and economic level of families.
