Help pick the best ABIA-winning book of all time

March 15, 2018

Calling all book lovers!

The Australian Book Industry and Better Reading need your help to decide on the best ABIA-winning book of all time! In doing so, you’ll go into the running to win two VIP tickets to this year’s ABIAs (including flights and accommodation) plus a copy of ALL the ABIA winning Books of the Year. That’s a lot of books…

All you have to do is choose from a shortlist of 12 previous ABIA-winning books and explain why, in 25 words or less, this was your choice. Entries will be judged by a panel of judges who will determine the winning entry according to originality, creativity an knowledge of the selected book.

Three Pan Macmillan books are nominated:


The Dry by Jane Harper, The 52-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths & Terry Denton and The Great War by Les Carlyon.

So we’re predicting a three-way tie between them….not that we’re biased or anything!
