Australia’s Favourite Bookshop Competition

‘Without great bookshops in our country there would be no great Australian books.’ – Markus Zusak author of The Book Thief.


In the lead up to National Bookshop Day celebrations on Saturday 10 August, the The Australian Booksellers Association (ABA) are inviting book-lovers to vote for their favourite bookshop.

Everyone who participates in the competition will go into the draw to win $500 worth of Australian Book Vouchers to be spent at their favourite bookshop. The winners for each state and territory as well as an overall winner will be announced on National Bookshop Day.

If you love Readings, then we’d be delighted if you would consider voting for one of our stores!

You can vote online right here – terms and conditions are also listed here.

We’re also excited to announce that we’ll have some special guests in our shops this National Bookshop Day… Where’s Wally and Spot the Dog will be visiting our Carlton, St Kilda, Malvern and Hawthorn shops during the day and some special prizes are on offer – so be sure and brings the kids along for some fun.

If your local shop is Carlton, be sure to arrive in time for an extra special hoo-ha at 11am!
