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 2020 Awards will take place on 18th May 2020 at The JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel.
Entries have closed for the British Book Awards this year. Come back soon to see our shortlists!
