The Book Oscars nominations!

Good evening and welcome to the 2010 Book Oscar Nominations!

So firstly, apologies for being so technically incompetent. The plan was to get all of the polls into this post, but as yet that is totally defeating me so for now, please find them to your right... yey!

Also, due to slight complications vis a vis the global blog link up network (a bit like Thunderbirds) I am only releasing the first few lots of nominees tonight. I quite like the idea that the suspense will build up for best male and female characters... it's like the real thing. Sort of.

Anyway, here they are! (Points right) At this point I would like to offer huge thanks to, Books in the City, Paperback Reader and The Ideas Bakery for taking their time to share their favourite books with me. Muchly appreciated ladies.

And for the eagle eyed amongst you I haven't forgotten... here are the Book Cover Design Nominees for your approval...

I hope in the next few days to get all of the nominees into one post but for now.. let the disagreements and infuriated whynotthisamazingbook? posting begin!


  1. This is a brilliant idea!

    Just for a mini rave - I love Fraction of the Whole!! Best book ever. 10/10

    Sorry, just needed to get that out of my system

  2. Great idea, Cate and thanks for including me!

    I will get a post up about this before the end of the week!

  3. What a fun idea! Sadly I've not read any in the 'best novel' category...

  4. How fun! :) I voted...but not for best novel. I haven't read any of them. But I put a couple on my TBR list!

  5. By the by, I can't see Best Male and Best Female... am I being blind?

  6. Thanks for offering me the opportunity to participate in The Book Oscars! I enjoyed nominated some favourites and the biggest books from last year.

  7. afternoon folks... thanks for all your very nice comments!
