Books Live Reports that Crime writer Deon Meyer won this year’s Nielsen Booksellers’ Choice Award for his latest thriller, 7 Dae (7 Days). 7 Dae will be published in English as 7 Days later this year. I'm reading it now, and it's fabulous!
The Booksellers’ Choice Award and a check for 20,000 RSA was presented
to Deon Meyer at a gala celebration which was part of the
Publishers and Booksellers Associations of South Africa’s Annual
This award has run for twelve years. Each year booksellers are asked
to choose the books they have most enjoyed reading, promoting and
selling, from these submissions. The Booksellers’ Choice Award is chosen
and presented by the South African book trade in recognition of
outstanding contribution to the industry. The award is only open to
South African authors who are published in South Africa and celebrates
the excellence and high standard of South African writing.
