Stories


Find our posters at bus stops around Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland, scan the QR code and discover unmissable stories for your ride. Or take it home!

  • Read extracts to get hooked on your next read,
  • Have a quick look at book blurbs and reviews made by people who know a lot more than us and see what is there for you (or is it a birthday gift for somebody special),
  • Listen to interviews and podcasts
  • Watch book trailers
  • Listen to radio adaptations
  • Find collections and catalogues

Special thanks to our special partner for making Stories the Go a reality!
