Our brilliant boss Fiona with Paul Barclay and Stan Grant!

No surprise that Stan Grant led the way last week after our amazing event on Monday night. If you missed it, Radio National recorded it and will broadcast it very soon (we’ll let you know when as soon as we do!).


Shout-outs to our books of the month When Breath Becomes Air, Emperor of the Eight Islands and The Midnight Watch for also making the list. They’re both terrific reads if we haven’t already foisted them upon you!


Dr Ray Kerkhove’s book Aboriginal Campsites of Greater Brisbane continues to sell well, and we’re sure it will be on the list next week after his official launch tonight! George Megalogenis’ new Quarterly Essay also gets a guernsey. Don’t forget you can hear George discuss the essay with Yassmin Abdel-Magied and Anne Tiernan on Thursday April 28!


A special mention to our growing collection of magazines, whose sales were through the roof last week!


And last but not least, it is kind of comforting to see both The Life Changing Magic of Tidying and its natural follow-up The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck together on the list (and the one with swears being higher…).

Until next week… keep on reading!
