Adult literacy provision has become more functional and assessment driven over the last decade, largely due to funding requirements and the introduction of the national test. One result of this is that the clear benefits of reading for pleasure in adult skills development have become less apparent. This book addresses the need to support teachers in developing adults' skills through reading for pleasure as an individual and group practice, incorporating the activity into the curriculum. It focuses on reading for pleasure for adult emergent readers - those who consider themselves non-readers either because they feel they cannot or do not read - and draws on the author's research with adult readers and reading circles. It will be of particular interest to adult literacy, functional skills and ESOL teachers/trainee teachers, adult literacy and ESOL teacher educators, librarians and community development professionals.
