A Borders Coupon – 2009 Booker Shortlist

Our Border’s coupon emailer has arrived today and it is offering a 20% discount on all 2009 Booker Prize shortlisted offerings.

That means the following:
Summertime by J. M. Coetzee
The Quickening Maze by Adam Foulds
The Glass Room by Simon Mawer
The Children’s Book by A. S. Byatt
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters.

Has anyone read one or more of these yet?
If so, any recommendations for frittering spending my tiny amount of personal time on reading?

  1. If you are interested in historical fiction, I can strongly recommend the Byatt (early twentieth century) and the Mantel (fascinating book about Cromwell). My bet is on Mantel to win – it is an outstanding book.


  2. Hi Charlotte,
    Thanks for the recommendations. I went with Mantel and “Wolf Hall”.
    Based on the size, my very small amount of free time will be booked out for a month or two !! ;-D
