This is going to be a massive challenge for me, as I normally only read about 80 books a year, so making sure they all fit into one of the categories might be quite hard! I’m willing to give it a try though!

Here are my categories:

1. Books published in 2009

2. Books short listed for Booker Prize

3. Books short listed for the Orange Prize

4. Non - Fiction

5. Books in translation

6. Books set in America

7. Books set in Asia

8. Books set in Europe

9. Classics

I really liked the style of writing in What Was Lost. What did you think of it?

I loved the writing style in What Was Lost too, especially Kate's bits. I wish the whole book had been based on her, as it was so well observed. I thought the modern sections were not as good.
