Abstract. The relevance of the study lies in the analysis of the role of the book in the process of modern youths` socialization. It is stressed that the future of the country largely depends on the success of the capitalization of knowledge and skills of this socio-demographic group. The purpose of this study is to find out the specifics of the processes of socialization of a particular students` generation by analyzing their attitude towards the book as a value. Materials and methods. The substantive basis of the article is the analysis of the results of a specific sociological survey among students of three Russian cities – Moscow, Volgograd and Astrakhan. Results and scientific novelty. The authors note that the book continues to be the most important institution of students` socialization. According to the results of the survey, it is reflected in a high degree of support to the aphorisms about books and reading. The features of socialization of a specific generation of modern youth are revealed – a significant influence of clip thinking, psychologism, escapism. This is recorded to varying degrees of support for various aphorisms about the book and reading – opinions are more divided in which the book is presented as a cinema, a mean of travelling to other worlds, a way of knowing oneself alone. The contradiction between the positioning of the book as a value and a means of solving specific life problems among young people is shown. The authors draw attention to the varying degree of support for understanding aphorisms in cities: this is more evident among students from Astrakhan, to a lesser extent – from Volgograd students, and between them – students` ratings of Moscow universities. The explanation for this lies in the peculiarities of the sociocultural space of a particular city, due to both the historically formed mentality and modern realities, which has a certain effect on the process of students` socialization.

Keywords: socialization, books, reading, students, universities.
