The best books, the best publishers, the best bookshops
Welcome to The British Book Awards. In 2020, we celebrate 30 years of the awards – or the Nibbies as they are affectionately known.
Celebrating the best books, the best bookshops and the best publishers, the list of past winners is a roll call of outstanding literary success – from 2019’s Book of the Year, Sally Rooney’s Normal People to authors of the year Lee Child, Philip Pullman, Bill Bryson and Salman Rushdie.
Run by The Bookseller, The British Book Awards are regarded as ‘the BAFTAs of the book trade’.
The awards night will now be taking place on 29th June 2020. The awards have moved from their original date of 18th May 2020 as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, which has disrupted many events and public gatherings. You can find more information here.
