Double celebration for William, 10, completing reading challenges at Ottery Library

‘Imagination and adventure’ sparked 10-year-old William West’s thirst to read 100 books for the second time around at Ottery Library.

It was a double celebration for the youngster when this month he was presented with his second Book Track Award certificate and gold badge, which also coincided with him finishing his Summer Reading Challenge.

An Ottery Library spokeswoman said: “William completed his Book Track on Saturday 24th July and at the same time he also completed his Summer Reading Challenge, so we were delighted to be able to present William with his Gold Book Track badge and certificate at the same time as presenting him with his Summer Reading Challenge medal and certificate.

“This is the second time that William has completed Book Track so he’s actually read in excess of two-hundred books.”

William told library staff he had ‘particularly enjoyed’ books written by David Walliams, Adam Blade’s Sea Quest and Beast Quest books  and Liz Pichon’s Tom Gates books because they were ‘funny’ and ‘had him in stitches’ with laughter.
