One of the things we did during the Boys, Blokes, Books Bytes program is give free books to everyone involved. Readers were offered six books from the list below. They chose three at the first evening event and three more at the finish when we staged a Bookgig at the State Library of Victoria.
We had multiple copies of all books, though not enough for one of everything for everyone. If you see what I mean.
Titles are listed from younger to older readers, approximately.

Thanks to the Little Bookroom for helping us track them all down.
