The big news today in the book world was the announcement of the Booker Prize winner. I delayed writing about it because, I admit it, I was a bit disappointed. So Hilary Mantel won again. I never got through Mantel's Wolf Hall about the early life of Thomas Cromwell. It started off so promisingly but I just got, well, bored. So forgive me if the giving of the award to Mantel again for Bring Up The Bodies, which is the second book in a planned trilogy, doesn't fill me with the usual excitement I get when approaching a new book.
