Independent Book Blogger Awards Winners Revealed!Posted by Patrick Brown on May 16, 2012
Goodreads and the Association of American Publishers are pleased to announce the winners of the first-ever Independent Book Blogger Awards. Designed to showcase the incredible talent working in the book blogging community today, this year's award winners are standouts in their field.
Goodreads members flooded the polls for this inaugural IBBA, with nearly 10,000 people voting for more than 800 blogs. And the topics the blogs covered were extraordinarily diverse: a recap of World Book Night; a post about favorite literary quotes; a Fify Shades of Grey read-along. After the Goodreads community narrowed the field to fifteen finalists in four categories, a panel of book industry professionals judged each blog for its caliber of writing and design, depth of knowledge, and the quality of the discussion it generates.
The winning blogs exemplify what book blogging is about: building community. Without further ado, here are the 2012 winners of the Independent Book Blogger Awards!
- Insatiable Booksluts - Adult Fiction
- Sophisticated Dorkiness - Adult Nonfiction
- Nerdy Book Club - Young Adult & Children's
- Writer Beware Blogs - Publishing Industry
Each of these bloggers will receive a trip to New York City for the upcoming Book Expo America 2012, the premiere conference and trade show for the publishing industry, and the BEA Book Bloggers Conference. Congratulations to the four winners and thanks to everyone who entered or voted in this year's awards!
