2011 Grand Canyon Reader Award Nominees

December 8th, 2009 by Brian Leave a reply »

How the Grand Canyon Award books work:

  1. We give you the top ten books from recent years.
  2. You read the books.
  3. When voting time comes around, you vote for the best book out of the ten.
  4. You sit back and relax, having enjoyed some really good books while you wait for our next list.

Check out the main site here.

The Brooklyn Nine by Alan Gratz (2009)
Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson (2008)
