vote for your favourite Irish book

Irish readers should be interested to know that voting is now open in the Irish Book Awards.

Select your favourite book in each of the ten categories, and you’re added to a draw where three winners will receive €250 of National Book Tokens. That’s a prize I would love to win!

Voting closes on May 1st 2009.

Not that I’m trying to influence your vote or anything, but I’ll note that Dublin-based writer, Michael Scott, is nominated in the Dublin Airport Authority Irish Children’s Book of the Year – Senior Category, for his young adult urban fantasy novel, The Magician. It’s part of an on-going series called The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, and worth your consideration.
