I was tweeted the link by my local bookshop, and it got me thinking. I'm not sure I have ever read a book that has won the prize, or even one that's been short-listed. So, I'm setting myself a challenge to read as many of these books as I can before the year is out. Obviously it's not going to be cheap, unless any lovely publishers or agents would like to send me a copy ;0) but I hope it will be worth it.
