The American Booksellers Association invites the owners and staff at all member bookstores to cast ballots for the 2012 Indies Choice Book Awards and the E.B. White Read-Aloud Awards. Voting is open till March 31 via an electronic form on BookWeb.org.
Every bookseller at an ABA member store is encouraged to vote; one ballot per person will be accepted. One book in each category will be declared the winner, with the exception of the Picture Book Hall of Fame, where booksellers will choose three inductees. The winners will be announced on April 5 and will be invited to take part in ABA’s Celebration of Bookselling Author Awards Luncheon at BookExpo America 2012 in New York City.
All of this year’s finalists represent the types of books that indie booksellers champion best. The E.B. White Read-Aloud finalists reflect the playful, well-paced language, the engaging themes, and the universal appeal to a wide range of ages embodied by E.B. White’s collection of beloved books.
