'E-book of the Year' vote at Sainsbury's

E-books by Sainsbury’s is asking customers to vote for their ‘E-book of the Year’ from a list of 150 titles.

Customers can nominate their chosen titles throughout December, with the winner announced at the end of the year. Everyone who votes is also entered into a prize draw to win all 150 e-books of the year.

E-books by Sainsbury's is using the vote to encourage users to sign up to its platform by asking them to create an account before pressing the "recommend" button on the title they want to vote for.

Titles in the 150 line-up feature “everything from popular crime and romance to the latest books by leading lights of the literary world”, including Man Booker Prize winner The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton (Granta), Bridget Jones’ Mad About the Boy (Cape), Morrissey’s Autobiography (Penguin), The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (Little, Brown), Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Weidenfeld & Nicholson) and The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes (HarperCollins).

Tim Lennox, managing director at eBooks by Sainsbury’s, said: “Our longlist represents what has been a hugely successful and surprising year in books. We think our list fully represents the diverse and discerning reading tastes of the British public, and can’t wait to discover which of these wonderful books takes the title of eBooks by Sainsbury’s eBook of the Year.”

The platform is also backed by publisher shareholders HarperCollins, Penguin and Random House.
