The Quills: Winners!

For those of you who do not care enough about books to know what the Quills were, shame on you! I'll explain anyway: the Quills are the People's Choice Awards of publishing. Librarians and book experts picked out examples of what they thought were the best, and John Q Public got to vote online. There's some worry about whether or not anyone really voted, but that's beside the point....

...because there are WINNERS! Oh, and after you read that link -- view ALL THE WINNERS, NEWSWORTHY OR NO! If you looked at what books John Q Public has been talking about lately by scanning the news, you'd probably see the names JK Rowling, Jon Stewart, Freakonomics, and Bob Dylan over and over again, from both advocates and detractors. So, it should be no surprise that they were the big winners -- but at least people are reading. Maybe they'll turn around and pick up a copy of the Debut Author category winner and take a shine to something that didn't make the regular news.
