What Qualifies?

  • Books must have been published between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013 -- To be eligible for most categories, books must have a first publication date in 2013, or must be a revised edition issued in 2013. Please note: a reprinting is not the same as a "revised" edition - the book's content must have been revised during 2013 to be eligible.
  • Print books and ebooks are both eligible -- Books are welcome if published in any format, including print (self-published or traditionally published) or electronic (eBooks, PDF books, Kindle books, Google ebooks, CD-ROM and similar electronic formats). Electronic books must have either an ISBN number, ASIN number or a price tag for sale. "Free ebooks" in the form of short content offered only as a marketing incentive (such as an inducement to subscribe to an email list) are not eligible.
