  • So is this another sexist award given to women only upholding the narrow minded values of Honey & Wax’s proudly published policy?

    • Not sure where you got that, John. Our CABS scholarship has been open to all booksellers on Biblio and in the most recent years, has extended the offer to the entire bookish community. It seems like you are using an old post solely to take a dig at Honey & Wax. They are professional booksellers for whom we have a good deal of respect. They are free to offer whatever scholarships they wish based on whatever categories they choose, as is anyone else.
