This paper aims to present an analysis about Clarice Lispector's (1998) tale "Amizade clandestina"(Clandestine Happiness"), focusing on her main character and relating her actions, as well as avid reader, with the pleasure that reading can cause. In addition, we have raised a discussion about school and the training of readers. With this purpose, we try to clarify the reader about the concept of reading, reader, children's literature and what is said about the pleasure of reading. For this, we used as a method a comparative study, based on the theoretical contributions of Barthes (1973), Smith (1997), Araújo (1996), Coelho (2007), Braith (2013 and, Zilberman (2012), among others.
