Meandering literary backwaters is just so much more rewarding don't you think?

Cornflower

I do!

Toffeeapple

I agree that the backwaters are more rewarding and I am so pleased that Waterstones have awarded Belle Sauvage Book of the Year.

Dark Puss

I have no interest at all in book prizes (and that should be taken as a neutral statement of fact). I am not sure any book I have really enjoyed has won one (probably that should be taken as a statement of ignorance).

Cornflower

The book was certainly worth the wait.

Cornflower

I am always glad when a book or author I rate highly gets the publicity and increased sales that a prize generally brings, but prizes per se can be almost meaningless (I could speak at length on the subject!).

Toffeeapple

I will allow myself to read it soon, I have a small fruit cake and a bottle of Blanquette de Limoux to keep me company.

Cornflower

That sounds perfect.

Terra

I am with you meandering in the backwaters and discovering authors new to me and now beloved.

Cornflower

They are well-populated waters, in more ways than one!
