I am delighted to announce that I have been asked by Rebecca at Bookish Beck to be a member of the shadow panel of readers who will make our way through the six titles shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize. We will be choosing our own winner shortly before the official prize announcement on Monday, April 24th. We are also joined on the panel by Amy Pirt who blogs at This Little Bag of Dreams.
The shortlist is below:
So far I have read the four non-fiction on the list:
When Breath Becomes Air
The Gene: An Intimate History
I Contain Multitudes
How To Survive A Plague
I have just reserved the two fiction from the library and I’m looking forward to them arriving.
