But really I just want this one annual delivery -- all those Booker Prize books to appear magically in my mailbox.
Instead I'm on Amazon right now, buying them separately. I know Alicia's read the Peter Carey (love Peter Carey). Anybody read any of the others and care to chime in? I'll read them regardless since this list never fails to introduce me to writers I might not otherwise find on my own, always refreshing.
Yes, I could take them from the library, like Alicia, but for whatever reason (habit, idiocy), I need to own the paper they're printed on.
Coming soon, though not automatically, to my mailbox, the 2010 Man Booker Prize shortlisted titles:
Peter Carey, Parrot and Olivier in America
Emma Donoghue, Room
Damon Galgut, In A Strange Room
Howard Jacobson, The Finkler Question
Andrea Leavy, The Long Song
Tom McCarthy, C
