Australia’s largest celebration of books and reading, Get Reading! is back in 2013 with the ultimate guides to the best Australian reads. Along with the traditional Top 50 Books You Can’t Put Down, in 2013 Get Reading! has collated a list of Australia’s Top 100 Favourite Homegrown Reads, exclusively voted for by subscribers, fans and friends of Get Reading!
In September each year, Get Reading! runs a month-long, nationwide campaign focused on inspiring more Australians to discover or rediscover the pleasure of reading. The 2013 Top 50 Books You Can’t Put Down again delivers a wide range of books for everyone to find their next favourite read. Hand-picked and curated by a panel of industry experts, the guide guarantees you will find a great read, no matter your personal taste.
From authors who are all Australian, the list contains something for everyone, from picture books to history, memoirs to popular fiction, award-winners, classics and more. The guide will be available from Sunday 1 September here on the Get Reading! website (desktop, tablet and mobile optimized). It is also available to download as an interactive PDF, click here, and for the first time, as a multi-touch book for the iPad, available on the iBookstore. The 2013 Get Reading! campaign runs from 1 September to 30 September.
