Canterbury’s top 20 books have now been found – time to find a winner
With the top 20 books in Canterbury now found, a new search begins today (Saturday, 5 August) as the What’s Your Favourite? initiative moves into round two of voting to find the region’s favourite book.
Canterbury’s readers and book lovers voted for hundreds of books in round one of voting which opened on 15 July.
Canterbury’s favourite book will be announced on Saturday, 9 September during The Press Christchurch Writers’ Festival 2006 and will be posted on the www.whatsyours.co.nz website.
What’s Your Favourite? has evolved into a Canterbury-wide event, with Christchurch City Libraries working to get its library colleagues in Waimakariri, Selwyn, Ashburton and Timaru districts and their customers to participate.
