GREAT BOOKS TO READ!
You can use our School Library System (click on the link in Library links on the panel on the right) to find great books to read. Try looking for books by title, author or genre – e.g: FUNNY FICTION, ADVENTURE/THRILLER FICTION, HORROR & SUPERNATURAL FICTION, TEEN LIFE FICTION, SPORT/HOBBIES FICTION ….. For recently published books try searching for ‘NEW in 2012’ or ‘NEW in 2013’.
In addition to using the School Library System, two St. Crispin’s reading lists have also been set up on LOVEREADING4SCHOOLS. These lists contain a suggested range of fiction recommended by the Library for students to enjoy reading. The books on the list range from light reading just for fun to more challenging reads. If you like a particular author on the list, but have read the book suggested, you can click on the link to ‘other books by the same author’ for more suggestions. Some info is also provided about the majority of authors, with links to follow to find out more about them.
You can also DOWNLOAD A FREE EXTRACT of many of the books on the list – so students can try the book out before borrowing it from the School Library.
There are 2 lists : one for Key stage 3 students (Years 7-9) and one for Keystage 4 students (Year 10 upwards)
Keen/advanced readers in the younger years should also look at the Key stage 4 reading list for further ideas of what to read.
All the books on the lists can be borrowed from the School Library!
(see the ‘opening times’ page for details) If the book from the list you want to borrow is out, we can reserve it for you.
