Top 100: Start Your Christmas Shopping

Voting for the Better Reading Top 100 is currently open, and the votes are pouring in. This is our 5th year, and it only gets bigger and better, with more people voting, counting and reading these marvelous books. Did you know that by voting you go into the draw to win all 100 books in the Top 100. Marie Kondo would have a fit, but it’s a prize pack any true bookaholic dreams about.

It’s also that time of year where Christmas shopping is upon us. What better way to simplify the madness and simply make a trip into your local Big W and grab everything you need from the Top 100 display. Our 2018 list is filled with great gift ideas for all the family.

For the teens in your life

The Book Thief by Australian author Marcus Zusak took out the 2018 #1 spot and is a great read for teens. Other teens will love classics such as To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. For reluctant readers you can’t go past Matthew Reilly, whose thriller Scarecrow made the list.

For the women in your life

The inclusion of Holly Ringland’s The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, Trent Dalton’s Boy Swallows Universe, Christian White’s The Nowhere Child, Dervla McTiernan’s The Ruin, Chris Hammer’s Scrublands, and Lauren Chater’s The Lace Weaver reflects a new and growing appetite for debut Australian authors, and the success of these is largely driven by female readers.

For the men in your life

Going by the results, Australian readers love Australian authors and Australian stories. Grab the guy in your life a novel by an Australian icon, such as Dirt Music or Breath by Tim Winton, The Daughters of Mars by Tom Keneally, or The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay.

And don’t to forget to vote.
