Book of the Year Awards

bsboy3.gifI always try to note the books that have won awards, just because so often there’s a good reason for the honor. I also think someone out there (I do this myself) just might have browsed River City’s tables, spotted a title and thought “I wonder if that’s any good …” and then later found out that, well, it was good enough to earn recognition at a rubber chicken banquet so maybe I should go back and read it.

So, then, here are the winners of the 2007 Book Sense Book of the Year Awards — “recognizing those titles independent booksellers most enjoyed selling during the past year” — as voted by the owners and staff of American Booksellers Association bookstores (like the one in your neighborhood):

Adult Fiction: Water for Elephants: A Novel by Sara Gruen

Being a Woman
by Nora Ephron

Children’s Literature: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
