Curated by bookshops, chosen by booklovers

The Books Are My Bag Readers Awards are one of a kind. They're the only book  awards curated by bookshops and voted for by booklovers. Launched in  2016, and sponsored by National Book Tokens, the awards include categories which celebrate fiction, non-fiction, beautiful books, breakthrough authors, poetry and books written for children and young adults, with shortlists chosen by booksellers across the UK and Ireland. The Readers' Choice Award – nominated and voted for entirely by booklovers – completes the set.
