Amazon’s 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime Begins in Childhood



“A bucket list of books to create a well-read life, chosen by Amazon editors”

Amazon UK have followed their couterparts across the pond and released their list of the 100 books to read in your lifetime.  The idea is to promote reading as a joy, rather than presenting a list that makes you feel inadequate. It is not meant as homework, or as a challenge but, rather to inspire a love of reading from childhood through adulthood.

Of course, as Amazon recognises, everyone will have their own opinion as to which books should appear on the list. They are encouraging the debate and hoping that readers will register at Goodreads  to list their own favourites.

Whether you agree or not, check out the list and if the children’s books on the list aren’t in your library, you might consider adding them to your list for the next birthday in your family.
