Hi, Wendy!
In your reviews why do you refer to yourself in the 3rd person?
Best Wishes,
Stuart
Hi,

Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked Butcher Boy, and I thought you might like my novel since it's also about a disturbed adolescent and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Thanks,

I laughed to see your tags; I recently wrote down the winning Booker prize titles with the intent of tracking them all down this year--your dedication is inspiring!
I read Midnight's Children for a college class and Possession just a few years ago. The others I haven't read. I really enjoyed The Sea, The Sea, too. I recently finished Moon Tiger (is that what it was called?) but it didn't make much of an impact. Oh, and I live in Utah County. It's hard to find other "readers" but I do belong to a book club so there's some hope...

I love your reading choices,I like to read prize winners and nominees myself.We have 180 books in common.
I was looking for someone who is in Utah who likes to discuss books...I have just started reading Booker prize winners and have only made it through a few but I saw that you seem to have read them all. I wondered what your favorites have been.
thanks for your reply. never mind if belated :-D

i still haven't got to the end of last year's longlist, the last two titles "winnie and wolf" and "self-help" are there in the shop in hard-back but i've spent way too much money to be able to justify grabbing 'em for the moment. i managed to get a bookshop to sponsor some of my booker reading in exchange for reviews, which helped a lot.
Duh! I meant to mention that I like the layout/content of your website!
Just happened to see your moniker, and thought I'd take a look. How are you getting on there in West Jordan? We lived in Sandy for a couple of years, with a beautiful view of the Wasatch Range. Utah is hard to beat for natural beauty.

Cheers!
Um, your user name made my day. It's what I aspire to be without consciously realizing it. Thanks for putting a name on it.
just wanted to give you a shout out since we share over 200 books. happy to see that someone else likes to tag prize winners as well. happy reading!
What do you think of Kiran Desai's win? It is the only one from the shortlist that I have read (so far), but I wasn't overly impressed. I am a follower of all things Booker as well but have found that over the last couple of years the best book has not always won (Cloud Atlas was better than Line of Beauty by enormous margins). Am interested to hear your thoughts about this years victor, apparently she isn't even too keen on the Booker. She says it is because it represents colonialism but perhaps it is because her Mom was thrice shortlisted and never won.
Someone else who loves all things Booker! I have such a guilty conscience from what I haven't got around to reading yet!
Loving your cataloge. Several of your books are in my backlog.
I was so pleased by "Lucky Jim" that I wrote to Amis. . . got a reply! Alas, this was longlong ago. I blush to think I can't recall the contents. I will try to find it if you wish. Esta1923
Hi, looks like we have a lot of books in common! Have you cataloged all yours yet? Love your website - I'll be following it for all things Booker :) Sharon
