I’m not here today 8
27 July, 2010
Yup, I’m Slightly Peckish again at Umamimart! So check out what I’ve been cooking this week in the heat.
Elsewhere in the bookish world, the longlist for the Man Booker Prize 2010 has just been announced today. As expected David Mitchell has been nominated. Yay! I haven’t read any of the titles but have The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet waiting for me very patiently on my shelf. There are a couple of titles I’m interested in reading such as Christos Tsiolkas’ The Slap, Helen Dunmore’s The Betrayal and Peter Carey’s Parrot and Olivier in America, but I’m not sure if I’ll manage it considering the speed at which I read (i.e. not very fast) and the number of books I’ve got lined up. The shortlist will be announced on 7th September, so maybe I’ll wait until then. We shall see.
So was this list a surprise or were the titles you expected on that list?
