Book Jacket: Major Pettigrew's Last StandAbout the BookBrowse Awards
Most consumer awards simply ask people to vote for their favorite books, which inevitably gives an advantage to the most widely read titles. The BookBrowse Awards a different in that subscribers are asked to rate each shortlisted book they have read on a 5-point scale - so the winners are not simply the books that have been most widely read but are the ones that have been rated highest by those who have read them!

Looks like a great short list of titles as well - I've added a few to my 'must read' list - which just seems to be getting longer!!
