Oh dear, I am suffering from sponsor sensory overload.  But at least we didn't have the Syco Audio Book of the Year or the Kroll Crime Novel of the Year or the Asos Young Adult Fashion Book of the Year…

Congratulations to the winners, those honoured and all those whose work delivers these wonderful creations into your hands and reading moments!

    Rhian – Thanks for sharing all of these winners. Glad to see Wolf Hall on the list🙂. Also good to see a category for children’s books. To me, anyone who gets a child interested in reading is a hero.
