Top 50 Books You Can’t Put Down

Top 50 BooksAustralia’s largest celebration of books and reading, Get Reading! is back in 2013 with the ultimate guides to the best Australian reads.

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 Get Reading! campaign runs until 30 September 2013.

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 is now available from the Get Reading! website (desktop, tablet and mobile optimized). It is also available to download as an interactive PDF, and for the first time, as a multi-touch book for the iPad.

Celebrity ambassador Shane Jacobson (pictured above) is the face of the 2013 campaign. Shane is one of Australia’s favourite personalities whose stage, film and television credits include Kenny, Charlie & Boots, Beaconsfield and The Time of Our Lives.

His memoir, Shane Jacobson: The Long Road to Overnight Success was published by ABC Books in August.
