Top 100 Australian books

As a result of the Educational Lending Right (ELR) 2009-10 School Library Survey, a list has been compiled of the top 100 Australian books.

Again Mem Fox tops the list with Possum magic, as she has every year we have published the top 100 list. Mem has a total of 7 titles in the list. The author with the most titles is Emily Rodda with 20 titles, followed by Paul Jennings with 14 titles. Morris Gleitzman comes in third with 9 titles in the list.

The top 100 Australian books list could be useful for promoting Australian books and reading. It is available on the SCIS ELR web page as a word document so you can adapt it for your use.
