Due to low literacy in Indonesia, some educational stakeholders endeavor to sharpen literacy rate. Many strategies have been conducted to overcome unsatisfying reading literacy. As one of the strategies, extensive reading allows students to choose their favorite resources. Indirectly, that strategy can help the students on reading habituation. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the kind of printed reading resources on student’s selection in extensive reading and student’s consideration of selecting printed resources in extensive reading in SMK Informatika Sumber Ilmu Sidoarjo. To answer this investigation, the subjects of this study were 53 students of 11 grade by filling a questionnaire and 4 students chosen randomly dealing with interviews. This study applies a descriptive qualitative method on 53 students applying the extensive reading in their class. These findings indicate that the student mostly chose novel, comic, and biography in printed book resources. Meanwhile, friendship, love, and family became students’ favorite themes. For genre, the students selected comedy, adventure, and history. The students selected descriptive text and procedural text. To add, the students always considered the title. Also, the students often chose content, inside illustration, cover illustration, and physical condition. A few times, the students selected a table of content and an inside flap. Unfortunately, the students rarely considered book organization, author, number of pages, edition and back cover. Moreover, length, date, and introduction were rarely and never selected by the students. Cover color was rarely and often chosen by the students. The findings highlight that extensive reading can be implemented further in educational institutions and libraries dealing with students’ favorite reading resources and considerations to select the books in order to increase the literacy rate.
