Bruce Pascoe’s Dark Emu is at the top of last week’s bestseller list; spending yet another week in the top 10. If you haven’t picked up a copy of his captivating look at this country’s history yet, this is the perfect time. We are also always happy to see prize winners such as Trent Dalton (Boy Swallows Universe), Behrouz Boochani (No Friend but the Mountains), Vicki Laveau-Harvie (The Erratics) and Richard Powers (The Overstory) still connecting with readers.

It’s also great to see that Mark Manson, internationally bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, is back with a new book called Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope. If anyone can not only put their finger on the malaise that plagues many of us, but help to fix it too, it’s Mark Manson.

And in further fascinating looks at the history of this country, Judith Brett’s From Secret Ballot to Democracy Sausage is well worth a look. It’s compulsory to vote in Australia. But how did this come to be: when and why was voting in Australia made compulsory? This is a fantastic read for reflecting on the election year that was.
