And the loser is….

The folks at Bookninja have posted a very funny faux-awards piece on the site. Called the Bookninja Golden Shuriken Awards for Ridiculous Behaviour, the awards honour particularly annoying outbursts and flubs by assorted literary types and organizations, including ex-International Festival of Authors impresario Greg Gatenby, who is awarded the Canadian Golden Shuriken Award for “(t)rying to make yourself look like a needy pauper in order to justify selling a vital library that ethically belongs to a non-profit organization that could really use the money anyway.” Heather Reisman is also given a special GSA for “(b)ringing us what we didn’t know we wanted from a bookstore: 40% fewer books.”
