Stretch and Challenge reading lists 

We have chosen some books we think will make a difference to your studies.

Please do take the time to read some of them. Make the commitment now! Aim for at least 25 pages a day, to start with.

If you are looking for further inspiration, try the ‘Review’ section of broadsheets like the Guardian website or other similar newspapers. You will be able to read about some great works of recently-released fiction and non-fiction.

Or maybe explore some of the websites dedicated to great books; www.goodreads.com is a great starting point.

 A whole new world awaits, and you don't even have to leave home to explore it!

“What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” — Anne Lamott, writer
