Great Aussie Reads is dedicated to promoting and celebrating the huge (and growing) number of Australian writers out there who are producing amazing fiction and non-fiction books of all types and genres. Unfortunately there are very few physical bookshops around that actively promote our home-grown authors (or even have an Australian authors section), so this site aims to make the reading public aware of just what is out there. It is not an on-line bookstore, rather it provides information about books so you can either follow links to purchase books on-line or enquire at your local bookshop or library about particular titles that interest you. We generally only list one book per author (unless they write across different genres), but once you follow the links provided you will be able to see if they have further titles available.
_As long as you have the authors name and book title, most bookshops should be able to order it in for you. Don't be afraid to ask - the more demand there is from customers, the more likely bookshops are to stock local authors. Public libraries also encourage suggestions for books to purchase - check with your local library.
Books are grouped into categories for your convenience, so please have a look around and find a book (or several) that interest you. Take a chance on a new author (or somebody unknown to you) and be pleasantly surprised. Please pass the link onto your friends so they too can find Australian books and help promote our fantastic home-grown authors.
