Get Reading Australia - Books Alive

For the next month the Australian government is sponsoring the Books Alive campaign.
The Books Alive campaign identifies 50 books you can't put down.
You should be able to pick up a little booklet, featuring all 50 books, at participating booksellers.
The books on the shelves will have the distinctive Books Alive sticker.

You can also search an online catalogue on the Books Alive site and that's how I came up with the book covers of 7 books on the list that are of interest to crime fiction enthusiasts. (click on the image if the image is a bit blurry for you)

In addition, so long as supplies last, when you buy one of the 50 books you are eligible for a free book. There are 2 books on offer.
  • all-new collection of stories by ten of Australia’s best writers, including Peter Temple.
or Grug Learns to Read.

The Books Alive campaign extends from 26 August until 30 September 2009, or while stocks last.

Buying Robotham and getting a free story by Temple sounds tempting, but for me it is probably cheaper to use Amazon as usual :D

Have you read the 10 short stories, Kerrie? What I wonder about is whether any of them might be useful for teaching purposes.

I haven't read any of them yet Dorte - still have to decide which book to buy!
