Australia Council's books promo

Crikey Says the site Books Alive is an annual initiative funded by the Australia Council promoting 50 "great read" books across a range of genres.

The 2005 program was launched this week and has roped in the internationally best selling author of Ice Station and Hover Car Racer, Matthew Reilly, to extol the virtues of reading.

Reilly has even written a free, limited edition, self proclaimed "page-burner" to mark the launch, entitled Hell Island.
