Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to gain insight into children`s voluntary reading in their spare time. I have focused on printed books and none of the digitally published Medias. I want to examine how children experience the power adult`s exercise over their chose of books and also why they choose the books they do. The method of this study is qualitative with interviews of six 10 years old children. I conducted the interviews detachedly and I have used two different point of view for my study; Aidan Chamber`s ”Reading Circle” and Barbro Johanssons opinions if children`s participation in terms of their voluntarily book selection. I have also studied other researchers and author´s writings about literacy, children´s reading habits, adults´ attitudes to children´s reading and children´s passion for reading. During my study it became clear that children who like to read prefer to read detective stories for children, a result that also earlier investigations reached.
