This year's Slovene book awards went to Davorin Lenko, Petra Kolmančič, Anja Golob, Zoran Knežević, Marcel Štefančič, as well as to the love letter correspondence between Karel Destovnik and Silva Ponikvar. However Slovene authors hardly made it to the top of this year's best selling books.
It was also a dry season for Slovenian publishers, who have been in a difficult period ever since 2008. The future doesn't look promising either. A research into the reading culture of Slovenes says that reading habits are also in decline.
