The Literary Hoarders are getting ready for another year of shadowing the Man Booker Prize for 2013! This year there have been a few tweaks to the process and we have added a new blogger to our group! Welcome The Well-Read Fish!
Aaron over at Typographical Era put together an amusing intro for our 2013 Edition of BookerMarks, and you can read that here. Michelle, from a Reader and a Rider also weighed in on her hopeful picks for the long-list. You can see her hopefuls here. Her list came from the Goodreads list of over 160 books eligible for the Man Booker Prize. You can see the full list here.
It will be very interesting to see what does indeed make the official long-list! Last year’s titles were certainly a surprise and it will be very interesting to see what this year’s judging panel includes. We do hope you follow along with us as we embark on this always fun mission to predict the winner of the Man Booker Prize!
Tuesday, July 23 is the much anticipated Longlist announcement!
From the Man Booker Prize site: The Man Booker Prize promotes the finest in fiction by rewarding the very best book of the year. The prize is the world’s most important literary award and has the power to transform the fortunes of authors and publishers.
The key 2013 prize dates:
23 July 2013 – Longlist announcement;
10 September 2013 – Shortlist announcement;
