This year the National Book Foundation sought to draw more attention to its award and nominated some more well known authors than in previous years. Too see the nominees and winners, listen to interviews, and learn more about the award itself, visit the National Book Foundation Website.

Have you read any of the winning books or nominees?  I read the nonfiction winner over the summer, and I believe it was an excellent choice for a winning pick.
