  • Includes a brief section, 'Best Sellers', which reports the result of a literary survey that was issued by the Sydney Morning Herald whereby questionnaires were distributed to 'the libraries and bookshops of News South Wales...with the object of getting a line as to the State's taste in contemporary literature'. In addition to the findings of the survey, this commentary also draws a comparison between the literary taste of readers in England, America, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
