Sharing books can help you manage the challenges of cancer, understand complex issues, and start conversations. We offer over 80 books about all stages of the cancer journey you can borrow for free, for as long as you like.

We’ve chosen a wide range of books to cover as many different themes, situations, beliefs and stories as possible. The opinions, recommendations and stories expressed are those of the authors only. They don’t necessarily represent the views of Redkite.


While a great deal of the information in Book Club books is helpful, none of it replaces the information given to you by your hospital. If you have any questions or concerns, please discuss them with your treating hospital team. 


These books come from a number of different countries and don’t always reflect the medical practices in Australia.
