Does print still matter in this digital age? What is the role of technology in reading? Do adolescents who enjoy reading view the reading of print and digital material differently from those who do not enjoy reading? Drawing on survey data from 6,005 students and focus group data with 96 students across six secondary schools, this mixed-methods study examines adolescents’ print and digital reading habits in Singapore. Findings show that adolescents prefer print but move towards more online reading as they get older. Adolescents’ online reading habits are reflective of their print preferences and behavior with physical books. The article explains how both print and technology matter to motivate adolescent reading.
