comment:
"This substantial thesis – supported by a very extensive range of tables and appendices – explores voluntary reading habits in the multilingual environment of Kenya. Designed as a case study, it focuses on the social image of reading, the functions of reading, the factors impacting on reading habits, and the language use in reading among members of the ethnolinguistic Kikuyu and Luo communities in Nyeri District (Central Kenya) and Kisumu District (Western Kenya). By taking a reader-oriented perspective the study aims to add a new dimension to the discussion on the status of reading in the Kenyan context, which has thus far been mainly debated from the point of view of publishers."
