No Show, Just Great Books

October 15, 2006

snow.jpgI am nothing if not plugged into the awards scene. Well, I should qualify that statement. I follow awards for books. Frankly, I could care less about those awards shows where lots of pretty, famous people dress up in outlandish costumes. But maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, there have been a flurry of bookish honors doled out this week, including some of the big ones. A few links for those who are scoring at home:

The winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature has created a stir in his homeland.

The second annual Quills Awards, a people’s choice-style award for the book world, have been announced.

And we now know the finalists for the various genres presented a National Book Award, which will be handed out next month.

Of course, if you’d like to know where to buy any of these acclaimed titles, there’s a great store in downtown Northfield that I recommend.
