Five Out of Six!

September 6, 2011 at 4:19 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

I think that’s my record so far: I correctly guessed five of the six titles on the Man Booker short list for 2011.

Neener neener neener.

I haven’t read Half Blood Blues yet – the one title I missed – but I’ll be pleasantly surprised if it’s better than The Stranger’s Child, the one I misnamed.  When you start reading the long list but don’t finish it in time, it’s nice to know that there are still some “winners” left in the pile.

    • We’re actually talking about trying to bet on Ladbrokes next year. This is the second year in a row I’ve gotten 5 out of 6, and I managed 4 out of 6 the first year I tried! This year two of my picks had odds of 14:1 and 16:1; $20 would have gone a long way.
