Our Love Summer reading competition results are in for 2019!
This year we opened up the competition to all ages and received over 500 entries from people sharing their summer reading.
The competition ran from 1 December 2018 to 15 February 2019. Participants sent through the titles they had read over the holidays, in the hope of winning $50 readings vouchers.
We’ve listed some of the top entries as well as some of the more intriguingly titled books that you may have not have encountered.
