Booker Long List!August 16, 2011 at 10:39 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments
It’s Booker time, kids, and you know what that means! I’m going to try to read through them all before the short list is announced on September 6 and then guess which titles will make the cut. I missed last year but I’ve beat the odds in the past and I’ve done a little better each time. I’ve even guessed the winner before without having read it.
As you can see, I have 10 of the 13 titles. The Last Hundred Days is back-ordered. My Amazon UK books all came early after a delivery date of 8/31, which is good because my days of reading 1806 pages in six days are probably behind me. I have Snowdrops on reserve and… I just realized that I somehow forgot to order The Sense of an Ending! Ye gads, that won’t do.
I’m nearly done with Pigeon English and really enjoying it. I’ll review each book as I go, though I must say it will be a challenge while trying to finish my own manuscript.
Any Booker-related news, opinions, or speculation?
