Book Awards

I love following the AbeBooks blog Reading Copy and they post a lot of book news and information. It seems like every day they are announcing another book or author that won another award. Maybe I'll get it someday in the future but I just can't keep up with all of them. Do there really need to be so many? And how is anyone supposed to keep up with all the names, what they're for, when they're awarded and who has won them all?

Do you think it takes away from the honor of winning an award when there are so many? 'Award-winning book' almost doesn't mean as much. Of course, I would most likely feel very differently were I ever to actually win an award...
