    I read a lot in primary school, but I would have found the thought of reading all 100 of these quite daunting:

    Edit: although having said that, some like the Hungry Caterpillar I could read in about 5 mins.

    I've read about 38 of them and I basically spent my entire pre-university life sat in my room reading! Most of these lists I've usually read a substantially larger percentage. None of my friends would have read anywhere near that.... Might challenge my niece....

    I work in a library and every time a customers account comes up I also see how many books they've previously taken out from the library. One of the highest numbers I'd ever seen was for a 10 year old. She'd read over 1000 books from the library. Her parents actually asked if I had any recommendations and my normal go to responses such as Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, she'd read years ago.

    Thankfully she was just about old enough I felt comfortable recommending slightly more mature books like Sabriel, and His Dark Materials.

    I have only read like 5-6 books from that list. But I bet some of these I have never completed.
    However there are some which I have read some of it and others where im not sure if I read it or not.

    Was anyone else into the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz? I remember loving it and Horowitz was on Blue Peter one time!

    Thought I would relive and just found the first book is on Amazon's daily deals so is only £1.19 today. Not bad at all....https://www.pricedropdonkey.com/go/c/2383155?

    I think it's the top 100 different recommendations made when individual teachers were surveyed, rather than an actual reading list :ahee:


    Glad to see my two favourite books from primary school, The Hobbit and Artemis Fowl, make it into the top 25

    I've most of those, but they are missing the books I enjoyed most in Primary school. Where is the Lord of the Rings? Anne of Green Gables? Northern Lights? And Harry Potter?
