[Note from IU admin: The finalists for the category “Best Book Review Sites” were determined using Alexa rankings where ties existed. The site “Let’s Get Digital,” was also nominated for the category “Best Watchdog Site.” While this is a portion of what Mr. Gaughran does on his site, we felt the category “Best Resource Site” was a better fit.]
