Partnering with Good Reading in 2020


In 2020 James Bennett is partnering with Good Reading (GR) to make it easy for you to keep in touch with what’s hot and what’s not.

Good Reading is Australia’s most popular print magazine and trusted digital resource about books and reading. 

With a subscription, library members and staff can access their  suite of magazines, including Good Reading, SpineOut (for YAs) and PK mag (for primary kids), plus an array of digital resources including book reviews, interviews, exclusive articles, video content, podcasts, flip-book and HTML versions of our magazines and latest book news, all with a high level of Australian content.

Access is available from the library or from home. Good Reading is where your members will find their next great read.

Each month, James Bennett will present all titles referenced in the current issue of GR in a cart on our promotional carousel for ease of viewing/ordering.
Within each title we will embed a link which will take you directly through to the GR review page for the same month. If a title has received a review in the GR magazine, you will have easy access to it as supporting evidence for making your ordering selections.

Don’t forget you need to be subscribed to GR in order to access the reviews, click here to subscribe today!
