Books Are My Bag Readers Awards

The Books Are My Bag Readers Awards are a unique new set of awards. They are the only book awards with shortlists curated by bookshops. And booklovers vote for their favourite books to be the award winners.

In 2016, six shortlists were chosen by booksellers across the UK & Ireland: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Biography & Autobiography, Children’s, Breakthrough Author and Beautiful Book. A special Readers Choice Award – voted for entirely by booklovers – completed the set.
