So now I have four, and I’m ready to go. I have to choose somewhere to start, so I am opting for The Gathering by Anne Enright. It seems a gentle place to begin. I see its an Irish family saga - is it just me or are there a lot of those about? Time to choose a bookmark, brew a cup of tea and turn the first page.

on your marks, get set
An unfriendly face greets us most mornings. Thankfully his intrusion is often sweetened by a handful of books. This morning he handed over one Special Delivery package (a kind Amazonian marketplace seller must have realised how impatient I am!) and muttered that there would be more along later. A couple of hours on and a red van plus man hands me 4 more parcels. Two are Bookmooches, which will remain on the To Be Read shelf until after the Booker quest. And three are further Booker longlist titles.
