Goodread Awards 2015

The Goodreads Choice Awards for 2015 went up last week. The first round of voting is complete and the semi-finalists have been announced.

I’ve read two books on the list for Best Picture Book (out of twenty) and have a good sense of one of the others (having read several in the series). I’ve never heard of or seen the rest. When did Jimmy Fallon write a kid’s book?

I don’t go in for awards much, but they are interesting to watch. What makes a book (or movie, or television program) the “best”? Is it fair to vote for the best of something when you’ve only sampled ten percent of the field? I don’t think so, but that’s probably what happens.

I do enjoy seeing what’s popular in the lists as a means of grabbing some books for my own to-be-read list. I’ve just requested a few of them from the library. If nothing else, these awards are a great way of raising awareness of what’s popular out in the mainstream.

You can check out the list here.

Keep burping.
