NEW ZEALAND BOOK MONTH ASKS “ARE THESE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS?”
To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee
The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe – CS Lewis
The Time Traveller’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger
The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
Are these your favourites? To make sure your favourite books are counted, register your votes by Friday 5 November. Votes will then be collated into a series of reading recommendations for New Zealand Book Month in March 2011.
Nikki Crowther, Project Director, explains more: “We’d love to hear about the books that readers love – the ones that they recommend and share with friends and family. Our hope is that we will have some genuine and passionate recommendations that totally reflect the wide and rich variety of New Zealand’s reading pleasures.”
Voting is open to everyone in New Zealand, and New Zealand Book Month is offering a prize every day for voters – including new book releases, themed book packs worth over $100, and book vouchers to help with Christmas shopping – thanks to generous support from publishers and booksellers.
