Ron I'd just like to point out that the winners of this award are indeed NOT the best books, they are the most popular books.
Just Sayin'...

Janet Martin I am still very displeased at the combination of Fantasy and Paranormal Fantasy, both of which categories have ranked in the top 5 voting categories for the previous 4 years. In particular because paranormal books have squeezed out traditional fantasy in the finals this year--7 of the 10 finalists are paranormal books, and although some readers enjoy both genres, many don't. It seems to me that you might have selected less popular categories for reduction if you really needed that "business" category--and why not expand that one to include all inspirational and self-help books, particularly since some of them apply to self-help beyond the business environment? So what is the deal about adding additional categories? Seems a simple solution to me!


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* Janet, I - and others - agree
