CBC Book's Readers' Choice Contest

CBC Books is asking Canadian fiction fans to help choose a book for the Scotiabank Giller Prize 2011 longlist.
The deadline for nominations is August 28. 

Explore this year's eligible books and submit your nomination.  Let us know why you think this book deserves to be considered for Canada's richest literary prize!

We'll tally your nominations and post updates about the status of popular titles. 
The book that garners the most nominations will be added onto the official longlist.

About one of the nominees Key In Lock by Rona Altrows...

This collection of mostly first person narratives overflows with witty, compulsive females. It’s a literary cathedral for worried women. Their husbands and lovers might let them down, their neighbours and their bodies might let them down, but Rona Altrows’ women keep on keeping on. Contemporary anxiety never had it so good.
—David Carpenter, author of Welcome to Canada
