Riverbend has been nominated for the BBC's Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction for her blog. Normally, the prize is only given to books.

I gues it shows that you can do worthwhile work inthe blogosphere, and it gives us all something to aim for.


I'm confused ... is it the blog itself that has been nominated, or the published extracts? The BBC article seems to say the former in the headline, but the latter in the text.

Damn. It looks like its the book - which is basically a printout of her first year of blog posts, but its still dead trees.

And OTOH, its the same content.
