The aim of this master thesis was to identify and analyze the reading experiences ‒ referring to the written text ‒ established at the school and extra school contexts that were narrated by four students. In order to do this, we selected two male and two female students from the fifth year of elementary school in a school that belongs to the public education system of the city of Catalão (GO). The methodology was based on a case study of ethnographic kind. The theoretical framework was based on the concepts of experience, from Larrosa (1996, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2008, 2009), Dewey (2007, 2010) and Benjamin (1994), and reading, from the works of Chartier (1996, 1999, 2007), Freire (2003), Soares (1999), Paulino (2001), Kleiman (2002), Yunes (2003), among others. The analysis showed us that the reading in the school context was tied to pragmatism, especially to the accomplishment of activities such as presentation of read stories and use of textbooks related to the copy. However, this context contributed to the establishment of the reading experiences because through its library the school put the reading materials available to the students, who, in their turn, made their choices and read according to their interests. Concerning the reading experiences in extra school contexts, we verified that both the school library and the public and private libraries of the city were crucial to encourage reading, providing students with reading materials that were read in waiting times, not only in these places but also at home. We also observed that the reading experiences were constituted mainly through printed materials – as books and comics. Besides, we proved that the experiences were related to the particular and subjective wishes of the students, especially to the familiar socialization/interaction, as well as to the future expectations of the students, to entertainment and welcoming. Thus, the “happened” readings in the waiting and idle times, in waiting for the end of a time until the beginning of other, in the school and extra school contexts, were significant for the establishment of reading experiences, because they achieved to touch and leave marks in the readers.
