Books and authors recently got their night on the red carpet with the 2006 Quill Awards.
Unlike other book awards, these are decided by readers, not critics or literary gurus.
The award ceremony was recently held and here's a run down of some of the winners:
Book of the Year:
Don't Make a Black Woman Take off Her Earrings: Medea's Unhibitied Commentaries on Life and Love, by Tyler Perry.
Marley and Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog, by John Grogan
Children's Chapter Books/Middle Grade
The Penultimate Peril, by Lemony Snicket
Eldest, by Christopher Paolini
(An aside from Word Nerd... Markus Zusak's The Book Thief didn't win in this category. Clearly, the awards are rigged. ... kidding... )
Dirty Job, Christopher Moore
