Shortlists - it is my intention to read the shortlists for the Booker and either the Orange Prize or the Pulitzer Prize.
Well, the shortlist for the Orange Prize was announced today and three of the books on the list are books that I already had on my list to read anyway, so now I have to decide which shortlist I am going to read. Given that I already do have some of them that I know that I want to read maybe I will do the Orange. The nominated books are:
Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Arlingtom Park by Rachel Cusk
The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers by Xiaolu Guo
The Observations by Jane Harris
Digging to America by Anne Tyler
Maybe I will make a final decision in the morning when I am not quite so sleepy!
