Top 10 Australian books

Posted on 5 February 2010. Filed under: Interesting websites, reading | Tags: , |

Here are the top 10 Australian books as survey by the Australian Book Review and here’s the full list of nominated novels. It’s a very interesting list spanning 290 titles with authors such as Tim Winton having several books in it. Of those 290 titles I’ve only read about 15 of them and some are very important books so I’d better get cracking. I do admit to having Lennie Lower on the shelf but I’ve never read it.

Here they are:

1. Cloudstreet, by Tim Winton
2. The Fortunes of Richard Mahony, by Henry Handel Richardson
3. Voss, by Patrick White
4. Breath, by Tim Winton
5. Oscar and Lucinda, by Peter Carey
6. My Brother Jack, by George Johnston
7. The Secret River, by Kate Grenville
8. Eucalyptus, by Murray Bail
9. The Man Who Loved Children, by Christina Stead
10. The Tree of Man, by Patrick White
