CBC Bookies

CBC Books presents their third annual CBC Bookie Awards, which allows readers to nominate their favourite books published in 2012. With a strong focus on highlighting the best of Canadian books, they are asking readers to contribute nominations for categories such as a Book That Made You Sob Uncontrollably or Most Attractive Book Cover. Readers may vote on a variety of genres and book types including fiction, cookbooks and non-fiction, and a few categories even cover international books, despite the emphasis on Canadian books.

The open nominations begin on March 13th, 2013, and readers will be allowed to vote until March 24th, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Taking readers’ nominations into consideration, along with recommendations from the CBC Books producers, The Next Chapter and Writers & Company, five finalists will be chosen for each category. The public vote for readers’ favourite books will begin March 27th, 2013.

Those who vote will also be entered into a draw for a chance to win a prize pack of assorted books. Three winners of the prize pack will be drawn each week until the time of the public vote.
