The Book Beast Nominated for Digital Ellie Award

The American Society of Magazine Editors named The Book Beast (the books section at The Daily Beast) as a finalist for the Digital Ellies in the “Online Department” category.

Book Beast features GalleyCat content every day in its “Other News” section, listed alongside some great literary sites: BookForum, NY Observer, and The Millions.

Here’s more from Jacket Copy: “In its category, the Book Beast will face off against the culture-focused Vulture from New York Magazine, Fast Co.’s Co. Design, Foreign Policy’s AfPak (documenting the ongoing conflicts in Southeast Asia) and National Geographic’s reader-submitted photo blog YourShot. Congratulations to the Book Beast for the recognition, and for keeping books so well-represented in the mix of what makes the Internet interesting.”

UPDATE: Reader and Poetry magazine editor Don Share reminds us that Poetry magazine’s podcast was nominated for an Ellie in the podcasting category.
