    As one of language skills, reading plays an important role to help learners acquire more vocabulary and sentence structures. However, most EFL learners see Reading Class as a boring class. They only do reading aloud and reading comprehension exercises in every meeting. On the other hand, EFL teachers often encounter authoritative and resources problems in selecting reading texts other than those prescribed in the course books. Within these limitations, teachers are often led into using repetitive activities which demotivate the learners in Reading Class. This situation not only happens in secondary levels but also in university levels. English Department students in Petra Christian University learn reading skills not as integrated skills. It makes students get bored easily and they cannot get the importance of reading skills. This paper aims to exploit reading texts in order to generate various interesting activities to not only motivate learners to be engaged in Reading Class but also arouse their creativity.
