Earlier today I started listing books I might read for the Award Winning Books Challenge 2012. Once I'd located the awards archives I was surprised to find how few of them I'd actually read. If you are also doing this challenge, the British Books Challenge, or any other reading challenge in 2012 where you might want to read UK award winning books, you might find the following websites useful.
- Carnegie and Kate Greenway Awards endure at http://www.carnegiegreenaway.org.uk/livingarchive
- The site of the Book Trust (UK-wide) gives links to newer UK awards http://www.booktrust.org.uk/prizes-and-awards/
- The Scottish Book Trust lists Scottish awards* (and more) at http://www.scottishbooktrust.com/node/21369
Hope this helps those who are interested in reading British books.
Oh, on a personal note, I've upped my target to Platinum on the Award Winning Books Challenge, and couldn't resist signing up for the British Books Challenge too!
I plan on starting with some old favourites (that I probably haven't read since my kids were wee):
Mr Gumpy's Outing by John Burningham
Mister Magnolia by Quentin Blake (review here)
The Jolly Christmas Postman by Janet & Allan Ahlberg (review here)
Best of luck!
*This also lists prizes to authors (and calls them awards)!
