Good to see Gordon in there
I haven't read "Into the Silence" by Wade Davis - but it does sound good, but I've read the other five and my nomination out those would be Gordon's.
Thanks Jim. It's going to be very nailbiting, because it's generally regarded as a strong shortlist this year. Still, it's great to have got this far ...
Well you've to be in it to win it Gordon. And to be involved in a 'strong' year whatever the outcome is no bad thing.
Indeed. Not to win is still a bit like getting a bronze at the Olympics.
Henry - is there a longlist? Before they cut it down to the shortlist? I'd like to know who entered but can't find it on the BT website - only 2011.
Friday afternoon at Kendal is usually reading from the shortlisted books and interviews with the authors, followed by buffet and the awards results.
Not sure what the Thursday event is you mention? This year is the 30th anniversary of Pete and Joe going missing on Everest so could an anniversary event. BBC Inside Out are doing a program I believe.
Guess it will end up on the site Enty. All entered books are usually on display at the awards. As far as I am aware Johnny did enter.
