Welcome to Better Reading

November 2, 2014

Cheryl intro

People are always telling me how hard it is to find the right book. With so many new releases every month, making a choice can be overwhelming. No one has time to read everything – or the money – so when you do pick up a book, you want to know it’s the right one. And that goes double when you’re shopping for  your kids or a special someone.

That’s why I’m thrilled to introduce Better Reading. Brought to you by the team behind Get Reading! and The Book Circle, Better Reading aims to make choosing your next read a friendlier experience.

Better Reading will bring you independent recommendations for the best new books for you and your family. We’re all about sharing great stories, and helping people discover new books and authors – year round.

Every month we’ll feature reviews of new books from Australia and overseas, plus lists of reader favourites, award winners, and our regular selection of Books That Won’t Let You Down.

While you’re here, browse our Book Lists and let us help you find your next great read. That way you can spend less time choosing and more time reading.

And if you haven’t done so already, please subscribe to our newsletter (if you do, you could win a great prize!) and join us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and get involved.

Finally, I’d like to acknowledge Hachette Australia, Harlequin Australia, Harper Collins AustraliaSimon and Schuster Australia and Text Publishing for their generous support of our launch.

Happy reading!

    Hi Cheryl, The site looks lovely, crisp, uncluttered and easy to navigate. Already there are too many I now want to read but the juices are flowing. Good luck. I’ll forward the site to my general and Bookclub friends. Jan
