A few years ago, the outlook for our independent bookselling scene looked gloomy. But ...you have survived, you are thriving, and because of your noticing and care, your love of words and your determination to flourish, you have kept Australian literature and our culture alive and thriving too.
On behalf of us all, I thank you so very much.

- Charlotte Wood, Indie Book Awards 2016 Book of the Year, The Natural Way of Things
