We are delighted to officially announce the winners of the 2010 Small Business Book Awards, Reader's Choice edition, here at Small Business Trends. About the Awards This year -- our 3rd year -- the Awards were more exciting than ever, with outstanding support from the small business community.\u00a0 We set up a voting site using the same Pligg platform that we use for our social bookmarking site,\u00a0 BizSugar.com, but customized for one-click voting.\u00a0 Books were nominated by a combination of our Book Editors and by the community. Of the 110 books nominated this year, nearly 60 nominations came from YOU --\u00a0 the community. Over 41,000 votes were cast - more than 10 times the number last year.\u00a0 It's a real testament to the support given to the authors of these books.\u00a0 That support is especially important because most of the authors are themselves entrepreneurs and small business owners. The year, we are recognizing the Top 10 winners overall, as well as the top 3 winners in each of the six categories.
