CBCA Book Of The Year: The Shortlist!

Posted: April 15, 2013 in Good reads

Hey booklovers!  Welcome back to school for a new term, which we are hoping will be just as great as last term but with less challenging weather and more books.

In very important breaking news, we can tell you today that the Children’s Book Council of Australia has recently released their shortlist of books in contention for the prestigious Book Of The Year Awards.  The list is a pretty good indication of what Australian books might be good to read, so have a look and see if you can find some reading inspiration!
