ABC RADIO BOOKSELLERS FORUM 2021
Every December on ABC Radio 702 Sydney, Richard Glover
invites a few booksellers in to help out with the quandary of buying books as Christmas presents - “All your Christmas gift problems sorted – reader by reader.” Your booksellers this year are David Gaunt from Gleebooks, Lindy Jones from Abbey's and Jon Page from Dymocks and the books shown below are their recommendations from each in that order. LISTEN TO THE RADIO CHAT HERE (26 mins)
1. A classic book to buy a young person just off to University or a first job.
2. A fine, and just published, literary work for your brainiac 40-something Aunt, who always seems to have read everything.
3. A real page-turner for your brother-in-law to take on a beach holiday.
4. A lively read for a 'not-too-keen-on-books' 17-year-old boy.
5. A gift for old Uncle Dennis who thinks fiction is a bit of a waste of time, on account of the fact that it's all made up.
6. A good kid's book.
7. The single book from this year that had the most impact on the booksellers themselves.
