I have been thinking a lot about book awards lately. The Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction (formerly the Orange Prize) recently shared their 2015 longlist and I am trying to read through the contenders before the award is given in June.
I would love to know:
- Do you follow book awards for fiction? What do you enjoy about book awards?
- If you do follow them - which ones are your favourite?
- Which book have you discovered, and loved, because of a book award?
- If you don't follow book awards - what is it about the idea that holds no interest for you?
Thanks for considering my questions; I am keen to read your responses.
