2009 Rules & Eligibility
The 2009 Goodreads Choice Awards have three rounds of voting open to all registered Goodreads members. Winners will be announced January 09, 2010.
Books published in the United States in English, including works in translation and other significant rereleases, between January 01, 2009, and December 31, 2009, are eligible for the 2009 Goodreads Choice Awards. Books published between January 01, 2010, and December 31, 2009, will be eligible for the 2010 awards.
We analyze statistics from the millions of books added, rated, and reviewed on Goodreads to nominate 15 books in each category. Opening round official nominees must have an average rating of 3.50 or higher at the time of launch. Write-in votes may be cast for eligible books with any average rating, and write-in votes will be weighted by the book's Goodreads statistics to determine the top five books to be added as official nominees in the Semifinal Round. A book may be nominated in no more than one genre category, but can also be nominated in the Debut Author category. Only one book in a series may be nominated per category. An author may receive multiple nominations within a single category if he or she has more than one eligible series or more than one eligible stand-alone book.
