Billy Buttons (billybobbuttons) | 19 comments The Wishing Shelf Book Awards is growing fast. Check it out at It's a new breed of book awards run very differently from any other book awards on or off the web. The entry fee is very, VERY low and everybody 'EVERYBODY!' who enters gets feedback from the judging, a catchy quote and reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. But the best bit is the judging. The children's book are read and judged by children in 7 schools in the UK; the adult books by readers in two established Reading Groups, 1 in Stockholm and 1 in London. Every book entered is read by a minimum of 15 readers and you will get all the feedback.

If you're interested, please do visit the webpage.

Steph Bennion (stephbennion) | 807 comments Hi. It does look like an interesting way to get feedback from young readers. I assume it's not open to ebook-only publishers?
