Bailey’s Book Prize: Library Ambassador

I’m very excited that I have been picked as a Library Ambassador for this year’s Bailey’s Book Prize.  Previous winners of the Bailey’s Prize (and previous incarnations of the prize) feature highly in my list of ‘favourite books I’ve ever read.’

Norfolk has just had a hugely successful reading campaign Norfolk’s Most Wanted and this has shown just how popular reading is still and to have the chance to read all six of this year’s short listed titles and share my thoughts on them as I read.

This year the six books on the short list are not ones that had really been on my reading radar, I think I’d heard bits of Naomi Alderman’s The Power when it was read on the radio but that’s as far as it goes.  I’m really looking forward to discovering six new books and sharing my thoughts.

The first book I picked out of the box was Do Not Say We Have Nothing and my thoughts on that one are coming soon.

Look out for displays around the Bailey’s Prize in a library near you and I hope to have the final details of an event celebrating the Bailey’s Prize at the Millennium Library very soon.

You can read more about the library ambassadors here and I’d love to hear your thoughts on my progress and the books either here or on twitter where I am @norfolkbookworm
