A very interesting long list and I was pleased to see a couple of books I've enjoyed (The Black Earth and The Angel's Mark) on the Academy Recommends list so thanks if you had anything to do with those being included. What a great thing to be involved in. I was so pleased to see some book bloggers being included.


It is very nice to see the book blogging community recognised in that way.


Sir Walter Scott was one of my dad's favourites and I have his books but I still haven't got around to reading them myself. The Academy list in his name is interesting - I loved The Sealwoman's Gift, The Angel's Mark, All Among the Barley, A Treachery of Spies and The Madonna of Valmorbida - five very different books but all equally enjoyable.

I will have to investigate the other books on both lists now as I'm sure that there are some gems on it.
