Reading Wish List






Good readers make plans for what they will be reading next.

They enthusiastically belong to a reading community.  They ask their friends about what they’re reading,  join book clubs and willingly recommend books to others.

They get to know their Library, become savvy searchers  and use online tools or blogs to keep them informed about books that they will enjoy.

The activities below are designed to help you develop this way as a reader:

Year 7

In this session, you will be getting to know the genres in the LRC.

You will notice that we have organized our Fiction books a little differently to some libraries.

We ask students genuinely browse and find books to add to their genre list that they would like to explore through the year.

We will also show you how to use the online catalogue.

Year 8 

Try Inside a Dog which is a website run by the State Library of Victoria.

Remember if you sign up, protect your privacy.  Use your first name only or a pseudonym and sign up with your school email account.

You can read or write reviews on this site.

You can browse wonderful YA Literature and develop a to read list.


Try Google Books in your gmail account.  You don’t have to sign up for this one.  Again sample books and add them to My Library.  Make a plan of books you would like to explore in the future.


Use the print list to develop a Wish List.  Discuss your selections with your Reading Teacher who will keep it for you.

Talk to your friends and ask them for books that they would recommend for you and add them on the list.

Congratulations to the students from Darwinia and Callistemon who won the opportunity to read Slated, Amulet and The London Eye Mystery.
