Summer Reading Guide

Each year we release a Summer Reading Guide, a comprehensive guide to the best books, CDs and DVDs of the season.

Our Summer Reading Guides are always jam-packed with gift ideas. Here you’ll find recommendations for language lovers, crime readers, keen gardeners, news junkees, kids and teens, foodies, and more – as well as a range of special prices and exclusive offers.

You can pick up a free copy of the 2016 Summer Reading Guide from any of our seven shops, download a PDF version here, or browse the collections below.

We’re pleased to offer free shipping on all online orders $100 and over, as well as free gift-wrapping. We also offer gift wrapping in-store for a small donation, which goes directly to the Readings Foundation.

Our Christmas shipping deadline for in-stock items being shipped in Australia is 5pm on Friday 9 December, so make sure you place your order before then to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.
