Last year, 1597 New Zealand children aged 10 to 13 taking part in the Kids Lit Quiz were asked to name their favourite books or series of books. They named 1350 books - these were the 100 most popular. How many have you read? (I had read 26.  I have hardly read any of the popular series for youngsters and teenagers, except for the Harry Potter series and some Terry Pratchetts, unless they date back to my own children - Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys for instance. I tried to put this list into a table to take up less space but the formatting went odd, so I reverted to the original.)
