What genres are included?

How do I nominate a book?

Visit this site, select the genre you are interested in, and submit your nomination in the comment portion of the post.

Things to remember when you nominate a book:

-You must be a literary blogger; and a link to your blog must be provided so we can verify this. (You may not be the author, publisher, or publicist of the book you are nominating).

-You may nominate a book that has already been listed (the books with the most nominations will be what we add to the Long List).

-You may nominate books in more than one genre, but only one per genre and please make one of those genres Literary Fiction (gotta plug the category).

-Nominations close December 15, 2010.

So, Ti… why are you telling us about this?

Well, I love books but Lyndsey and I are judges for the Literary Fiction category and guess who’s on our panel?

Jill – Fizzy Thoughts
Matt – A Guy’s Moleskin Notebook
Meg – Write Meg
Melody – Fingers and Prose

They rock. Since we are the Literary Fiction panel. Here is our shameless plug button:

It will be hard to determine one winner, but I can’t wait to see what makes the short list.

    1. You’re good! I can’t possibly read all that have been nominated. I am hoping that the short-list will be clear-cut based on reader response and then I can hunker down and read all of the titles for the short-list. Ti
