A classroom study on reading motivation with second year university students in Japan was conducted using semi-repeated reading of multi-path adventure graded readers. Qualitative data on reading motivation, supported by quantitative data on reading speed was collected and used to ascertain the level of reading motivation prior to, during, and after reading sessions. The desire to read in English showed increases at the end of the study despite feelings of anxiety about reading ability.
