The Bookies are the CBC Book Club Awards, celebrating the best in literature in 2010, as chosen by you! Join us for this month-long celebration and be sure to champion your favourite reads.


Today, we're rolling out the nominees in Best Poetry Collection, Best Short Story Collection, Best Comic or Graphic Novel and Best Non-Fiction Book. Vote on your favourite in each category. The book with the most votes in each group will take home a Bookie Beaver (which desperately needs a name, by the way. Feel free to make suggestions in the comments!).

Voting for these four categories will be open until Tuesday, February 15, at midnight ET. You can vote once per category.
