And the Bookie goes to...

I thought I'd heard of them all but I recently discovered yet another book award, this one handing out its inaugural awards.

They are the Bookies and are awarded by CBC's online book club. Readers voted online for their favourite titles and also had the opportunity to guess which of the titles would win in each category. What I found different about these awards was the wide range of categories readers could vote in: best relationship, best opening line, best scene, best overall book, best poetry collection, to name just a few. And the best part of the Bookies is the award itself: a beaver holding a book. How Canadian is that?

For more winners check out the complete list of winners at the Bookies site.
