Top 100 Australian books

A list of Australia’s top 100 books is now available on the SCIS website. Who tops the list? Who has the most titles listed? How many nonfiction titles are listed? How many picture books are listed?

The list was compiled from a school library survey conducted a result of the Educational Lending Right (ELR) 2011–12. The list can be downloaded as a Word document from the ELR web page so you can use it as you wish in your library. For example, it could be used to develop a library quiz or similar activity to stimulate interest in Australian book titles for students.
