About the awards
Most "people's choice" book awards actively encourage authors and publishers to send their fans to the voting page ("vote stuffing"). Clearly this gives a huge advantage to those authors with the widest fan base. Also, the standard method of voting is to simply cast a yes or no vote for a book - which again gives an advantage to the books with the highest sales. Thus most "people's choice" awards measure popularity, which is not always the same as quality!

To prevent vote stuffing, only BookBrowse's subscribers can vote in our awards. And to ascertain quality, instead of simple popularity, voters are asked to rate each shortlisted book they've read on a 5 point scale - the winning books are those that receive the higher overall rating.

In 2014, over 6000 votes were cast.
