The Indies Choice Book Awards reflect the spirit of independent bookstores nationwide and the IndieBound movement. Book of the Year winners and Honor Award recipients are all titles nominated by ABA member booksellers to the Indie Next Lists.
The E.B. White Read-Aloud Awards, previously administered by the Association of Booksellers for Children, recognize books that reflect the playful, well-paced language, the engaging themes, and the universal appeal to a wide range of ages embodied by E.B. White’s collection of beloved books. With the 2010 merger of ABC into ABA, they replace the Indies Choice Book Awards in the categories of Middle Reader and New Picture Book.
