The lack of interest of the younger generation in reading activities results in the lack of reading comprehension skills. The creation of technology-based learning media is expected to provide an alternative learning media that is interesting for students. This research uses descriptive qualitative method with library research type. The findings and discussion in this study reveal that cyber literature has important benefits in learning to read including (1) authentic reading material, (2) easy and flexible learning media, and (3) optimizing teacher's role as the facilitator and student’s role in the learning process. Thus, cyber literature has the advantage of utilizing technology and learning so as to enrich learners' insights.
