Nelson Reads contest organizers (from left) Joanne Harris of the Nelson Public Library, Joan Exley of Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy and Karen Bennett of the Nelson Star, as well as Letty Bartels of Otter Books (not pictured), had piles of books to give away to four lucky winners.

During the month of January, members of the public were invited to nominate their favourite book in one of four genres. Everyone who filled out a nomination form was entered in a draw. The winners were: Bonnie Baker who nominated The Third Crop by Rita Moir in the adult non-fiction category; Christine Bystrom who picked Saraphina by Rachel Hartman in adult fiction; Kazia Drake for Burned by Ellen Hopkins in young adult; and Takashi Munekawa for the children’s book The Robber Hotzenplots by Otfired Preubler.
