The ABA is pleased to announce that the ABA Nielsen Book 2017 Booksellers Choice Award winner is The Birdman's Wife by Melissa Ashley (Affirm Press)

This award 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 BookData and the ABA
