The Quill Book Awards have just been announced. The Quill Awards are sort of the “People’s Choice” of book awards. The list includes many titles we have here at Plumb, such as The Assault on Reason, by Al Gore (winner in the non-fiction category), The Road by Cormac McCarthy (winner in the General Fiction category), The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick (winner for children’s fiction), and The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, winner in the Debut Author section. For the complete list, go to the link on the Blogroll on the right.
Don’t forget to vote for Book of the Year, once you’re at the site. Voting ends Oct. 10. I voted for The Thirteenth Tale. For me, it was either that or The Road, which, while good, was very depressing and a little overwhelming at times. Let The Blog know which title you voted for.
