Abstract Extensive reading is a way of improving language ability by just reading a lot. Although there are some recommended rules to follow, it is sometimes difficult to sustain the user’s engagement in reading. It would be helpful to have the technology for sustainment. In this paper we report our first trial to establish nudging strategies for this purpose. From the experiments with 29 participants for 25 days in total, we have found that setting the goal of the amount of reading, as well as sharing the goal with a peer group of users with a similar ability is effective nudging strategies. Although the goal setting is not effective to the majority of users, we have been successful to prepare a prescription by which users with positive effects are selected based on their personal traits and the amount of reading. From the results, we are able to approach to personalized nudging strategies.
