Abstract
This paper attempts to record the popularity of recreational reading among pupils, focusing on their understanding of the text. Initially we explore the factors, i.e. family and school, that influence pupils’ reading habits. Then, using the questionnaire method, we investigate what a reader-pupil in the last two years of elementary school in Greece understands after having read a literary text, with respect to the fictional characters, setting, plot, viewpoint/narration and style.
