  Parents want their children to read Charles Dickens` classic `A Christmas Carol` more than any other book during their lifetime.
  父母们最想让孩子读的书是查尔斯•狄更斯的经典小说《圣诞颂歌》。

  2000 adults were asked to reveal which books they considered to be must-reads for the next generation.
  2000名成人参与了该项调查,揭露出他们心中认为下一代必读的书目。

  The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling was a close second, followed by The Lord of The Rings triology by JRR Tolkien in third place.
  J•K•罗琳的《哈利•波特》系列小说以微弱差距位居第二,排第三位的是J•R•R•托尔金的《指环王》三部曲。

  Others in the list were Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, Lewis Carroll`s Alice in Wonderland and Animals Farm by George Orwell.
  其他入榜的还有简•奥斯汀的《傲慢与偏见》、刘易斯•卡罗尔的《爱丽丝漫游奇境记》,还有乔治•奥威尔的《动物农庄》。

  The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, which is set to appear in cinemas as a Hollywood blockbuster later this year, sits at ninth in the list, and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is the tenth must-read.
  J•R•R•托尔金的《霍比特人》被改编成好莱坞大片,今年晚些时候将在影院上映,该书名列第九位,而哈珀•李的《杀死一只知更鸟》则排在必读书目的第十位。

  The findings mark the opening of The Hive - Europe`s first joint University and public library.
  这一调查是为了纪念欧洲首个高校与大众共用图书馆The Hive的开放。

  Anne Hannaford, Director of Information and Learning Services at the University of Worcester, said: "It is interesting to see that most of the popular books to pass down the generations have strong moral messages entwined in them.
  伍斯特大学信息与学习服务部主任安妮•汉娜佛德说:“很有意思的是,这些父母想传给后代的受欢迎书籍中,大部分都交织着强烈的道德教化讯息。

  "The books that feature in the top 10 all provide thought-provoking content and characters, so it is clear that parents value these books for providing challenging thoughts which can last a lifetime.”
  “排名前十的书籍中都包含发人深思的内容和人物,显然父母们认为这些书有价值,是因为书中蕴含了有启发性、让人受益终生的思想。”

  From the poll, it was also revealed `Alice in Wonderland` is today`s most-read book, with 41 percent of adults having read it.
  调查结果还揭示,《爱丽丝漫游奇境记》是当代最多人阅读的书籍,41%的成人都读过这本书。
