The all-conquering reign of Harper Lee(‘s marketing team) continues unabated this week, but some new entries have also made their way onto the list! We were lucky enough to launch Chris McKimmie’s marvellous new picture book Lara of Newtown yesterday at Where the Wild Things Are (complete with musical accompaniment!), and it’s rocketed to number two on the list.

LARA OF NEWTOWN

Along with our old friends The Mindfulness Colouring Book, Brisbane Art Deco and The Other Side of the World, it’s great to see Nick Earls’ very funny novel  Analogue Men make the cut this week. Arguably our most successful fiction title of 2014, Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See is finally out in a $19.99 paperback, meaning you now have no excuse not to read this multi award-winning book!

We cannot wait for our upcoming bookclub with Chigozie Obioma, and our enthusiasm must be infectious as The Fishermen returns once again to our top ten. Stay tuned later in the week for an exclusive interview with Chigozie, and don’t forget to book your ticket for what should be an unforgettable evening.

Rounding out the list is the Miles Franklin Award-winning The Eye of the Sheep and the most excellent Adult Colouring Book Fantastic Cities (which is perhaps a welcome antidote to the mandala-inspired nature patterns that have flooded the shelves of late).

Until next week… keep on reading!
