Welcome to Booktoberfest!
What is this strange and obscure hybrid word, you ask? Booktoberfest is Booktopia’s annual celebration of books, author and readers, and our way of showcasing 500 of the hottest Christmas book releases, to help you get organised for Christmas. Oh, and did we mention all books are up to 30% off?
Buy or pre-order your Christmas gifts now and avoid the mad dash to the shops this Christmas. Spend that time with your family instead. Or not. We won’t judge. John Purcell, Booktopia’s Head of Marketing and Chief Buyer, explains Booktoberfest…
Booktoberfest is split into 20 categories: Blockbuster Fiction, Crime, Life & Love, Professional, Food & Drink, Travel, Sport and Kids books. And eBooks. And audio books. And so many more!
The 25 books in each category have been hand-picked by our resident Booktopian editors, readers who are experts in their respective fields. We wouldn’t get the sports fanatic to choose the hottest kids books. Now that would be silly. The romance junkie chose the romance titles, the history buff chose the history reads, the kids expert the kids books. See what we did there…?
Our editors even made videos for you to watch and laugh at (Our acting skills are terrible. You’ve been warned). Watch two videos here…
