Summer Reading

There is no more important thing you can do to improve in English than read widely (it has a powerful positive impact on all other subjects, too). 

Set yourself a realistic target of the number of books you plan to read over the summer, and create a list.

Here are some pointers:

Ms Kent-Sutton, Librarian, has lots of great suggestions here. Note that it is easy to sign up online to Libraries Ireland and access free e-books, audiobooks and magazines/newspapers.

You can also use a Library card (see above) to discover handy book recommendations

A similar site is What Should I Read Next?

There are also lots of ways to discover books on Good Reads.

Five Books is an outstanding site, particularly for Senior pupils, with recommendations from experts in so many areas. If you are already thinking of what third-level course you are interested in, this is particularly good.
