We were in a thoughtful reading mood this week. Our top seller was centenarian Eddie Jaku’s story of gratitude, kindness and hope - The Happiest Man on Earth - which details his experiences as a Holocaust survivor. Tara June Winch’s award-winning and timely novel about reclaiming land and culture , The Yield, continues to captivate readers over a year after publication and sits in our number two spot.

Two brand new releases delighted our customers this week. Intimations: Six Essays by the always-popular British author Zadie Smith is a very relevant series of essays about the experience of lockdown, and illustrator and activist Florence Given’s Women Don’t Owe You Pretty is a rallying and upbeat feminist read.

If you’re hankering for some debut Australian fiction, our bestsellers this week includes novels by Victoria Hannan and Jessie Tu, and if you’re more in the mood for interviews with female leaders, then follow the crowd of readers to Women and Leadership by Julia Gillard & Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
