I always love knowing which books have won annual awards, I usually especially love the books from the Edgar and the Anthony awards.  I get a newsletter from the website stopyourekillingme.com/  (many of you are familiar with it) they sent this award list from last week.

I thought some of you would be interested...maybe to add to your lists or see what of the winners you've read!  These are the winners.  Before I found PBS, this was one way I found new authors.  Now I have all the recommendations I can use and then some extras!!  For the others nominees see the website.
