Sainsbury’s eBook of the Year poll opens

Sainsbury’s has opened the public poll for its Entertainment eBook of the Year 2015, which seeks to find the nation's best-loved e-books.

Now in its third year, the award is a celebration of “the very best the world of books has to offer”, allowing voters to choose from Sainsbury’s longlist of 141 titles spanning a range of genres, or “any book that’s been popular this year” if preferred, it says on its website.

Among the highlighted titles in the Sainsbury's Entertainment on Demand 141-long longlist are The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz (MacLehose Press), The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (Doubleday), Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee (William Heinemann) and Dictator by Robert Harris (Hutchinson). The full longlist is here.

This year voters won’t need to register to put forward their choice but instead follow a link to the Sainsbury’s Entertainment blog to review the eBook of the Year collection, before following through to its voting page to nominate their favoured eBook for the grand prize.

To encourage participation, visitors will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win £100 to spend on eBooks when they vote.

The shortlist will be revealed on 10th December 2015 and the winner of the award will be announced on 7th January 2015.

Last year’s winner was Peter James for Want You Dead (Macmillan), published June 2014.
