The Extensive Reading Foundation (ERF), is an unaffiliated, not-for profit organisation which supports and promotes extensive reading in language education. An international jury chose the winning books in five categories, taking into account Internet votes and comments from students and teachers around the world.

You can see the awards ceremony and a thought-provoking talk about the benefits of extensive reading by Catherine Walter on the British Council’s IATEFL Online website.

You can also find interviews with two of this year’s winners, Nicola Prentis and Michael Austen.

The nominations for the 2015 Language Learner Literature Awards were also announced. From books published in 2014, the ERF judges have selected sixteen titles of particular merit. From these sixteen finalists, the ERF will select one winner in each of six categories, taking into account online votes and comments.
