Booksellers at ABA member bookstores are voting to choose the best Book Sense 76 titles of the past five years and, in the process, are entering a contest to win the grand prize of five nights' accommodations and admission to BookExpo America for the next five years or one of four first place prizes to be announced. Participation is open to owners and employees of all ABA member bookstores.
Ballots to choose the top 15 adult titles and the top 10 children's titles from all top ten titles on the Book Sense 76 lists published since the program began in September 1999 are being sent in the January White Box and are available online, along with the Official Contest Rules, at www.bookweb.org/read/6665.
The printed ballot may be photocopied for distribution to all employees. Completed forms should be mailed to ABA, 828 South Broadway, Tarrytown, NY 10591, Attn: Best of Book Sense. Forms sent by mail must be postmarked by Monday, February 9. Forms may also be faxed to (914) 591-2720. Ballots sent by fax or through the online form must be received by Monday, February 16. Only one adult and one children's ballot is allowed per bookseller.
