  2. I also get a little excited when this and some other lists are announced. I also get tiny, tiny twinge of frustration (and maybe even anxiety). I realize that there are now more books that I do not have time to get to!

    Seriously, this looks like a list of great books.

    1. Ha ha Brian, I absolutely know what you mean! The never ending pile of books that I want to get to is overwhelming at times!

  3. I really like the Booker and tend to have better luck with its winners than an award like the Pulitzer. Sadly, I'd heard of very few books from this year's list. Gives me a bit more motivation to catch up on Mantel's books.

    1. The Booker winners seem to be a bit more easy to relate to or something like that? I *just* picked up Bring up the Bodies at the library 10 minutes ago, but other than that I haven't read the others! I think that some of them aren't even released yet, so don't feel too bad :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
