Awards for The Bicycle Diaries

June 4th, 2015 by David

When you publish a book, you don’t know how it is going to be received. Will anybody read it? And if they do, will they like it? I’d like to say that I don’t care much about the response — that I’m content to have published a book that I’m proud of — but let’s be honest. It makes a huge difference what readers say.

I’m extremely honored to have 50 positive reviews on Amazon. It was even encouraging that some ‘climate skeptics’ read the book and enjoyed it.

Also, at the recommendation of my editor, I submitted The Bicycle Diaries for a number of awards. The book has been honored with the following:

  • Shelf Unbound Notable Book of 2014
  • Finalist for the 2015 Montaigne Medal
  • Finalist for Forward Review’s IndieFab Book of the Year
  • Finalist for the 2015 Eric Hoffer Award
  • Runner up in the General Non-Fiction category at the 2015 San Francisco Book Festival
  • Bronze Medal for Travel Essay, 2015 Independent Publisher Book
