Check out this post for some background on this research, and why I put it together.

Here’s a breakdown of the book awards and prizes I surveyed, with pie charts! There are so many ways to look at these.

By format: what were the most popular nonfiction titles? Graphic Novels? True Crime books?

By country: Exactly how many book awards does Canada have?

Alas, there is not enough time or space to report on it all. I hope what I’ve reported is interesting and helpful – and made you curious about the kinds of awards that are out there.
