Do Awards Help You Choose The Books You Read?

Nancy Pearls tells Steve Scher, Katy Sewall and our table full of readers at the Bryant Corner Cafe her thoughts on book awards. 


We get some behind the scenes glimpses of the awards process, and find out, among other things, that the publishers self nominate for some awards. 

How do you use awards to help you find the next book to read?  Nancy recommends reading the whole list of nominees and not just the winners, because there you will find books for many tastes.
