Data were analyzed by simple regression analysis, product-moment correlation, and multiple regression analysis. The results of the study obtained first, the value of r count 0.832> r table 0.138 which means that there is a significant relationship between reading interests and science learning outcomes. Second, the value of r count 0.988> r table 0.138 which means there is a significant relationship between learning motivation and science learning outcomes. Third, the value of r count 0.988> r table 0.164 which means that there is a significant relationship between reading interests and learning motivation with the results of learning science. The relationship shows that if students' reading interests and learning motivation is high, student learning outcomes tend to be high. It means that students' reading interests and learning motivation are very important to be instilled in the learning process to maintain good learning outcomes and improve student learning outcomes.
