It’s almost time to reveal the Top 101 for 2016, as voted by Dymocks Booklovers.
Top 101 time is our favourite time of year, but we are extra excited about this announcement. We received a record number of votes and this year the final list represents a wide range of genres, with lots of wonderful Australian authors included – a testament to the talent of our local writers!
The Top 101 will be announced next Wednesday 30 March, but since we’re heading towards a long weekend we thought it would be a perfect time to host a guessing game.
We want you to predict which books you think will make up the top five. Start from number one, work down to number five, and tell us which books will have been voted in at the very top of the Top 101 for 2016.
The first person to correctly guess the top five books in the order in which they actually appear on the list
will win a complete set of the top ten books. If no one correctly guesses the top five, the person who gets closest will be declared the winner. Piece of cake, right?
While picking five books out of all the books ever published and correctly listing them in order is a highly daunting task, we are able to give you some non-spoilery hints that could point you in the right direction, or at the very least give you some sense of direction to begin with.
We have a full infographic to share with you once the list has been revealed, but this is what we can share with you right now:
Leave us your guess (one guess per person, so make sure you're confident with your answer) in a comment below. This competition is open to Australian residents only (as the full list has been made available to Dymocks staff members recently, staff members, their families, and their friends are excluded from entering) and closes at 11.59pm AEDT on Tuesday 29 March.
