The Delete Key Awards for Bad Writing in Books

Filed under: Delete Key Awards — 1minutebookreviewswordpresscom @ 10:04 pm

Yes, the National Book Critics Circle will announce the names of the finalists for its annual awards on Saturday. And the American Library Association will reveal this year’s Newbery and Caldecott Medal winners on Monday.

But only the Delete Key Awards tell you which books to avoid, not which ones to read. Don’t get burned by another bad bestseller! Watch for the names of finalists for the Delete Key Awards, which recognize the worst writing published in books in 2006 … coming soon to One-Minute Book Reviews. To nominiate a candidate, leave a comment on this site.


  1. Surely Scott Smith’s “The Ruins” deserves a delete key award.
