More Books

The Booker Prize Shortlist has been announced ...

Tan Twan Eng, The Garden of Evening Mists
Deborah Levy, Swimming Home 
Hilary Mantel, Bring up the Bodies 
Alison Moore, The Lighthouse 
Will Self, Umbrella 
Jeet Thayil, Narcopolis 

I've read the Mantel and wasn't surprised to see it on the list.  I have never heard of the others and will be rushing to the library website after I post to put these on hold.

Last year a shortlisted book won the TOB???

I haven't heard of any of these books. Will have to look them up.

Working on 2013 challenge and coming up with a mini canada read challenge. If you have any suggestions, let me know.
