Hello, teacher!

Are these all natural?

1. I read all the books last night.
2. I read the whole/entire book last night.
3. Each/every book in the store is on sale. or All books in the store are on sale.

Thank you very much.

All are basically fine. In #3, 'All THE books...' would be more natural.
