The British Book Awards
The British Book Awards, or Nibbies, is the definitive event for honouring the commercial successes of publishers, authors and bookshops. It succeeds 2016’s British Book Industry Awards. The Nibbies brings together books of the year with trade accolades such as publisher of the year and book retailer of the year. In 2017, The Bookseller acquired the Nibbies and it now organises the annual awards alongside its magazine, online and conference business. There have been many notable winners over the years. Faber was the first publisher of the year in 1990 and in 2016 the honour went to Transworld. JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince scooped book of the year in 2006 and in 2015 a resurgent Waterstones was named book retailer of the year. The British Book Awards takes place on 8th May at the Grosvenor House Hotel, to reserve your place visit http://www.thebookseller.com/british-book-awards
