Roald Dahl

This page is especially for readers who have purchased the Roald Dahl reading list by The Debonair Librarian.

The first time you click on a book link, you’ll be taken to a page where you can choose your preferred online bookstore. After that, the system will remember your preference.

The links are affiliated – which means if you purchase a book from following the link, we will receive a few pennies to help maintain this service. But it won’t cost you a penny extra.

Not all books are available as ebooks and therefore some of the titles will not be linked.
