‘Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.’ – Groucho Marx


It’s been a massive week here at the Centre for Youth Literature! We had our annual YA Showcase event, where we get to hear from publishers about all the books they’ll be publishing in 2019.

If that sounds like something you’d be interested in…

… check out our livestream of the event or you can have a read of the full book list on our Read Alert blog.

We have a stack of giveaway books left over from the event, including a special publication from Allen & Unwin which include chapters from their upcoming releases. We would love to give some of these away to Inside a Dog users so you can read all about what’s coming out next year and blog about what you’re keen to read in full. If you’d like a copy of one of the Allen & Unwin books, leave a comment below and we will mail it out! (don’t post your address, we will contact you via email to confirm postage)

If you like free books, you might want to sign up to be a Discussion Leader for our January Lit Club — we’ll send you a copy of Finding Nevo for you to read and discuss on the Lit Club blog. You can apply here.

You folks have been super busy, too! Sylvs has done some amazing new fan art.

otaku has some thoughts to share about The Crimes of Grindelwald and a great suggestion for how to plow through your TBR piles in 2019.

And if you’re a bit stumped for gift ideas this holiday season, rhapsody has you covered with these hot tips!

Happy weekend everyone!
