Cool

I'm a gal who really likes Barnes and recently read The Sense of an Ending and liked it too, so wouldn't have minded that. Three of the other nominees are on my Kobo in my TBR list, and by great luck the winner is available right now as an ebook in my local library. I wouldn't have minded buying The Goldfinch either. I like some sci-fi, so could also buy Hyperion if I like it well enough.

I hope you like it. There are 3 sequels, all brilliant.

Where is everyone for the July Nominations? I've already submitted my three recommendations. I don't care which of my recommendations you choose ( ), but it's getting rather lonely in there.

I'm having trouble finding a non-fiction book that I'll have time to finish and that would have a chance to win.

I o have one in mind though that I'll put up for a nod tomorrow if I have the time.

Looking forward to it. I imagine you can come up with some interesting choices.

I do think this one is very interesting choice. And with 40% off at Kobo, it can be had for a reasonable price.

Okay, this may sound weird, but it's summer. For some reason I have difficultly getting excited about nonfiction in the summer. The sun, the heat and vacations are just conducive to big fat novel reading!
