The Latest & Greatest: Award Winners in the Library


This post combines two of my favourite things: lists and books (no wonder I love my job as the cataloguer here in the RDC Library!). Here’s a list of the lists in this post:

List One: we’ve ordered a cornucopia of award-winning titles, some of which are ready to check out and add to your summer reading pile. They’re on the New Books shelf in the library, but don’t wait – these are the hot titles that have set the book world buzzing.

List Two: if you love award-winning books, check out the links at the bottom of this post. Many of these titles are also in the library – search here to find them.

List Three: head over to my favourite bookish website,, scroll down & you’ll find their massive A-Z list of awards in the right-hand column, from the Agatha Awards to the World Fantasy Awards.

Happy reading!

Well, this wasn’t an actual list – just a recommendation to visit and check out their impressive list of book awards. But hey, I appreciate that you read all the way down, so here’s a bonus for you: the library has also purchased a few Academy Award-winning films – Imitation Game, 12 Years a Slave, Boyhood – and they are on the New Book display too!
