If you’re looking for the perfect Lockdown 2.0 book recommendations list, then go no further than our bestsellers this week! Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s lively analysis of gender and leadership zoomed into the top spot in its first week, and would be a great companion read with another of our bestselling books, the re-released classic Talkin' Up to the White Woman.

If you’re itching for some fiction, Kate Grenville’s playful novel of real and invented Australian history, A Room Made of Leaves, has been very popular with Readings customers, as have two gripping Australian debuts, A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing and The Safe Place. Bernardine Evaristo’s 2019 Booker-Prize winning Girl, Woman, Other has been a regular feature on our bestsellers since its publication, and is still finding an appreciative readership.

Non-fiction readers are also well-catered for, with Bruce Pascoe’s seminal Dark Emu, the excellent anthology Growing Up Aboriginal in Australia and Julia’s Baird’s uplifting Phosphorescence all excellent choices for the current moment.
