The purpose of the present investigation was to sample the range of texts selected by 21 students in sustained silent reading in a single fourth-grade classroom. Using a sampling technique developed by French and Foster (1992), single pages from sampled texts were evaluated. The evaluation found that most students were reading fiction (n = 14), with some reading information texts (n = 4) and comic anthologies (n = 3). We found the range of reading levels spanned the grade levels from 1.3 to 11.5. Further analysis indicated boys and girls were distributed evenly across all categories. However, we also identified that the students, especially girls, did not read books commensurate with their levels of reading ability. Implications for classroom implementation of sustained silent reading are offered.
