Getting four balanced baskets of books takes longer than you think.
For now the lists are only on Goodreads shelves. The website will come later.
EARLY YEARS Shortlist
YOUNGER READERS Shortlist
OLDER READERS Shortlist
MATURE READERS Shortlist
If there are any glaring problems, e.g., with availability, let us know.
Thanks to the Early/Younger subcommittee: Kim, Isabel, Anamika, Ali, Kate B, and Pam
Thanks to the Older/Mature subcommittee: Katie, Lisa, and Susanne
Thanks also to others who offered suggestions all along the way: Linda, Barb, et al
Fixed the link mix-up -- where both the Early and Younger links above went to the Early list. The Younger Readers shortlist should now be appearing correctly.
Questions re sourcing books:
- Follett Titlewave lists can be requested from Jenna Emerson (firstname.lastname@example.org);
- Bookaburra is happy to provide books, especially the Australian ones. For example, they will be ordering in multiple copies of "First Third" by Will Kostakis on the Mature list. Email Cheryle Hum: email@example.com .
- Book Depository -- free shipping.
- Fishpond.com.sg -- also free shipping. They sometimes have Aussie/NZ books that Book Depository doesn't (e.g., "First Third" by Will Kostakis).
