    Literature is broadly defined as any written or spoken material, but the term most often refers to creative works (Thomas Gale); such as novels, short stories, plays, and poems. There is a relationship between life and literature. The novel which is interesting to be read is creatively written based on the aspects of life.
    The Benefits of Novels
    Reading literary work like a novel will enrich one’s knowledge about life. it can give the readers both amusement and moral teaching. Someone will sharpen his feelings and it will train him in about the characters in the story including conflicts by learning and analyzing what the characters have done, thought, or spoken.
    While reading novels, the learners will be able to enrich their knowledge e.g. vocabulary, structure, reading skills, and analyzing literary work. Reading literary work is not only a matter of comprehending the meaning of sentences, describing about events and characters, but also revealing more complex problems dealing with the reason, or the cause and effect of such occurrences on the characters.
    Thus, novel which is one of the fictional narratives written in prose either based on true experiences or imaginative occurrences will be so effective for learning English. It can be used as a useful media for improving students’ English achievements.

It means that you focus on     teachers’ explanations, listen to teachers and friends when they are speaking, get involved in learning activities, keep notes in order, and complete all assignments. If you are happy in the classroom, it will be easier for you to gain knowledge and improve your qualified skills to face whatever the test demands of you.

    2. Be fit

    Why reading is difficult
    It seems that reading is a kind of boring thing which is difficult for students to comprehend the massage conveyed from the passage. Limited vocabulary or poor general knowledge can be one of the causes of the problems in comprehending reading materials. The students are also lack of the skills of summarizing information, drawing conclusions, making generalizations or relating information taken from texts read. In fact, the students do not interested in reading because reading is taxing and frustrating.
    How “Boyscout game” make reading fun
    We need to figure it out, so we can help our students to overcome reading problems. One of the alternative is setting attractive activity for reading section. I created one of interesting game named Boyscout game in 2011 for my students at SMA Khadijah Surabaya for helping them so much in comprehending reading texts. Boyscout game provides challenges and adventures for students which makes them interested in reading.
    I applied Boyscout game yesterday in my reading class. Before class started, I put the reading texts including questions and code randomly wherever I wanted outside the class. I broke the class into small groups consisting of 4-5 students in each group. I gave each student a piece of paper, the blank sheet. Then, I gave cards for groups containing letters for clues in order to avoid the same direction. The cards showed clues the direction where they should go for reading; ABCDE, BCDEA, CDEAB, DEABC, and EABCD. For instance, group 1 who got a card ABCDE should go to part A, then B, C, D, and E. I told them that they could discuss in a group. They could discuss to get the meaning of some words which they did not know the meaning of. They could also discuss what the answers of the questions given. However, they should hand it in individually. So, one students could read 5 reading texts and comprehend the passage by discussing within the groups. They enjoyed reading with relaxing situation because they could play and learn.
    The followings are the series of the activities done in Boyscout game .
