The Nielsen Booksellers' Choice recognises the Australian new release that booksellers most enjoyed reading, marketing and handselling during the previous year.

We believe it is a special award because it is decided by the people who care enough to personally recommend and put a book in the hands of the reading public. 

This award is proudly supported on the membership's behalf by Nielsen and the ABA

Booksellers' Choice Award nominations are now open, please check member's weekly bulletins or contact us directly.
