Its quick and easy - just sign up and then verify your email address and you can get started.
For the first time since we’ve been holding a BOOK OF THE YEAR award in Bexley & Bromley Libraries, after counting your votes, we’ve actually got two winners!
Both these novels received exactly the same number of votes, so in the absence of Head Judge Len - we couldn’t split them. But we think that, as usual, our library readers have made some great choices: here they are, your joint winners:-
All the light we cannot see
A beautiful, stunningly ambitious novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II
An award winning novel, soon to be a film.
Waters of Eternal Youth
The Waters of Eternal Youth is a crime novel awash in the rhythms and concerns of contemporary Venetian life, from historical preservation, to housing, to new waves of African migrants, all circling the haunting story of a woman trapped in a perpetual childhood.
Thanks for all your nominations and votes ~ and enjoy the books!
