I think that the tradition of reading dates back to pre-revolutionary times, and it was effectively advanced in the Soviet times. The level of literacy has been, and continues to be very high, and the secondary education system in the USSR was largely focused on classical literature, both Russian and international. So the habit of reading has been deep-rooted, and most people continue reading a lot after school or college.
However, there's was a setback in this matter, unfortunately, because of the reform undertaken in the area of education in the Russian Federation and the advent of electronic gadgets, which certainly divert students' attention from reading books. Electronic books are popular in Russia, but remarkably, printed book sales are going up after a temporary decline in the 1990s and early 2000s. Also, they are improving the secondary school education system, getting rid of the mistakes that were made. Literature continues to be one of the main subjects in school, and according to recent polls, the number of reading people in society is on the rise.
