A CELEBRATION OF BOOKS AND BOOKSELLING
We are delighted to reveal the Book of the Year winners and shortlists for this year's British Book Awards: a stunning array of titles from fiction to non-fiction, children's to lifestyle, plus our new Pageturner category.
Of the Book of the Year shortlists, Alice O'Keeffe, The Bookseller's books editor and chair of the Books of the Year judges, said: "A lockdown year with unprecedented challenges for publishers and authors has given us some wonderful books, superbly published, which comprise our shortlists. From the six remarkable debuts to our readable pageturners, these are books to love, admire and celebrate."
We have created this page as a way of sharing our winning shortlisted titles and encouraging readers to buy them with independent bookshops. We are forgoing our commission on this affiliate page in order to further support those shops.
