CBC Bookies 2013: Suggest creative categories


Our annual readers' choice awards are back! 

We want to recognize your favourite Canadian books of the past year, but with a twist. We want YOU to suggest some categories for this year's CBC Bookie Awards! 

From 10 a.m. on Friday, Mar. 8, until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Mar. 10, follow us on Twitter (@CBCBooks and tweet your creative category suggestions using the hashtag #cbcbookies. 

For inspiration, here are a few of the awards we might present this year:

  • The Box of Tissues Award for Book That Made You Sob Uncontrollably
  • The Brangelina Award for Most Incredibly Attractive Book Cover
  • The New Kid on the Block Award for Breakout New Author

On Wednesday, March 13, we will reveal the 15 new categories and launch the open call for book nominations.

The final categories and finalists in each category will be determined after tabulating nominations from the public, along with input from the CBC Books team and producers at The Next Chapter and Writers & Company.
