    This article presents a study of literary experiences in a group of Norwegian and Swedish students in Teacher Education in the beginning of their studies. The authors have taught Norwegian and Swedish for many years in Teacher Education. We discuss the concept of «literary competence», attitudes to literature and reading, and what challenges teacher’s education face. The study is a result of cooperation betweenTeacher Education in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland), financed by Norplus, in the project «Nabospra°k i lærerutdannelsen» (Neighbor languages in Teacher Education). The aim of the project has been to promote Nordic student’s mutual understanding of Nordic languages and culture, reading of literature and teaching abilities. This project has made it possible to see the situation not only in a Norwegian, but also in a Nordic perspective. The study shows that the students, who specialize in teaching Norwegian or Swedish on the lower levels in school, read less books than those who qualify for higher levels. The students are positive to reading books in general, and many of them read a lot for pleasure and relaxation, but mostly crime and international bestsellers. They have less experience from other genres in literature and classic texts, and a more reflecting attitude to reading.
