Neil Gaiman took home two awards at The Audies tonight, including the 2009 Audiobook of the Year award, for The Graveyard Book.
Gaiman not only wrote the book, but also read it for the audiobook version. He’s been Twittering from the awards all night, and tweeted “Argh oh god i got it” when he won.
The Graveyard Book was up against Brisingr by Christopher Paolini and A Wolf at the Table: A Memoir of my Father by Augusten Burroughs for the top award. It also won in the “Children’s Titles for Ages 8-12” category and was nominated in the “Thriller/Suspense” category.
In addition, Chip Kidd’s The Learners, read by actor Bronson Pinchot, won in the humor category. Kidd has done design work for a number of comic-related books, including Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross, in addition to designing covers for numerous novels.
Congrats to both Gaiman and Kidd on their awards.
