Guess the Booker Winner Contest!

Office pools are a huge part of what makes America great - who doesn't fill out an NCAA bracket in March or buy squares on a Superbowl grid? (Well, I'm sure lots of people, but bear with me here.) How confident are you in your prediction abilities? Have you surveyed the field and drawn a logical conclusion as to who you think will win?  No, not Week One of the NFL season, the Booker Prize shortlist field!

In celebration of the announcement of the Man Booker Prize shortlist this week, we have decided to host a little contest here at the store - or at least the virtual portion of the store. Decide who you think will be the winner of the 2009 Man Booker Prize and leave your answer on our Facebook Discussion posting.  That's right, you have to be a "fan of Warwick's" on Facebook to complete your entry.  Don't worry, it's free, we just want more Facebook friends - and besides, don't you want to be our friend? You're reading our blog already, so what's the harm?

After the Booker Prize is awarded over in England on the evening of October 6, we will randomly select a winner from the huge pile of correct answers and award our own super-great prize: a copy of the winning book! (Of course, the contest winner may have to wait a bit for the book to become available here in the States, but that's a whole 'nother issue.)

Here is the list of nominees again:
Will Coetzee become the first three-time Booker winner? Will 34-year old Adam Foulds burst onto the literary scene with a win? Will Mantel maintain her early lead on the English odds boards and pull out her first win?  Get your entry in today!
