Abstract

Students' reading experiences are meaningful to be explored in order to attract their interest in reading. This study aimed to explore how the English department students of FKIP Universitas Riau experienced reading based on Exploring Personal Reading Histories. It was a case study and the data were collected through the document of the students'reading histories. The result of this study found that the English Department students of FKIP Universitas Riau experienced reading by reading through pictures in childhood and by reading stories in the first language. In reading English texts, they experienced reading by understanding words, rereading the texts, reading a lot of reading materials, sharing others, and reading for entertainment and knowledge. This study suggests that students need to be facilitated to explore their personal reading histories as an alternative way to attract their reading interest. This study only focused on the students who categorized as the most successful students in Reading courses and in presenting their exploration. Therefore, similar areas for further researches are expected to include the most unsuccessful students in Reading courses and in presenting their exploration.
