Most Popular Aussie Novels

Boomerang Books have complied their feedback and the list is in…

I received an email a few weeks ago asking me to tick a box against a list of Australian novels that I had read from start to finish. Boomerang Books had planned to compile a list of favourite Aussie books based not on sales, but on the number of people who had read them cover to cover. The results are now in and anybody signed up to their newsletter is getting a daily update, counting backwards from 24, all the way to number one which will be release on Christmas eve.

I’ve really been enjoying getting my emails. They come with a brief synopsis, information on the author and of course, a link to where to buy the books. So far the finalists have been:

#19 – My Place by Sally Morgan
#20 – For the Term of His Natural Life by Marcus Clarke
#21 – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
#22 – Dirt Music by Tim Winton
#23 – Breath by Tim Winton
#24 – So Much to Tell You by John Marsden.

If you are interested in following the list, take a look here.
