Dushu (, Reading in Chinese) is a monthly Chinese literary magazine. First published in April 1979 with its leading article No Forbidden Zone in Reading, it has great influence on Chinese intellectuals.

The first editor was Chen Yuan, a famous social linguist. A year later, Fan Yong took over. Circulation rose from 50,000 to 80,000 in five or six years. In 1996, Wang Hui and Huang Ping became executive editors. The magazine has tended to raise issues not previously discussed and carries a wide range of political opinions, including the views of Chinese liberals and the Chinese New Left.
