The Books alternative awards 2008

The good, the bad - and the downright silly - have all had their day this year. Here we nominate some alternative prizes for the publishing industry

This from The Times over the weekend, I especially liked these two:

The Henry Paulson award for generosity to a publishing giant in financially straitened timesJ.K. ROWLING'S timely gift to Bloomsbury of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

The You Woz Robbed, Mate award SEBASTIAN BARRY for his Booker-shortlisted A Secret Scripture, which was later revealed by two judges as their first choice for the prize.
For the full list go to The Times online.
