Bostonmomx2 I personally think these are fake 😕 14mo
Cinfhen I don‘t think so @Bostonmomx2 because I was once stopped on Hollywood Blvd by Kimmel‘s camera crew... 14mo
TrishB I read about this today 😔 14mo
Sarah83 It's unbelievable 14mo
MicheleinPhilly On the contrary, I want these people to stay FAR away from Litsy. Then can keep their idiocy on Snapchat or something. 14mo
Leftcoastzen 😬😳😬😳😬😳😬what‘s a book? 14mo
erinreads I‘m with @MicheleinPhilly. Do we REALLY want these people here on Litsy? 🙅🏼 14mo
LauraBeth I‘m gonna go and ask the husband this question...brb 😬 14mo
CouronneDhiver Good grief. 😐 14mo
Trashcanman This is a part of the reason things are the way they are in this country. People rather keep up with the Kardashians instead of the shit that matters. 14mo
Cailey_Mac The only thing that made me sad was the few who said they haven‘t read a book in X amount of years or ever and seemed PROUD of it. 14mo
Cinfhen That‘s true @MicheleinPhilly @erinreads but at least they would be able to say Moby Dick “wrote” a story about a whale 🐳 😂😂😂 😉Truthfully, It‘s a bit frightening ....these people make up our juries @Leftcoastzen @LauraBeth @CouronneDhiver 😳😬🙄 14mo
Cinfhen It‘s absolutely sad @Trashcanman @Cailey_Mac 😢😢😢 14mo
BarbaraBB Oh man... this is so depressing. Ignorance being cool 😪 14mo
Mdargusch Very disappointing! 😳 14mo
Weaponxgirl Oh damn 14mo
ScientistSam Oh wow, I really hope some of them just had brain freeze from being on TV. Like the one who said she had been a librarian... 14mo
DivineDiana @Cinfhen I agree they are real, but I think they only chose to feature the fails to make it entertaining. At least, that‘s what I hope! 😀 14mo
Cinfhen That‘s probably true @DivineDiana and I agree @ScientistSam LOTS of brain freeze but still it‘s a scary indicator @Mdargusch @Weaponxgirl @BarbaraBB 14mo
GripLitGrl Good grief!😬😵 14mo
CarolynM Oh...... {shakes head sadly}😢 14mo
Centique I think if someone asked me that question so many titles would flood into my head, I‘d probably pop a gasket or something. 🤯🤯🤯 14mo
Cinfhen That‘s true @Centique last night I asked both my hubby & son to name the first book that popped into their mind; son said “Lord of The Flies” and hubby said “To Kill A Mockingbird” and when they asked me I said “I don‘t know, maybe Gone With the Wind” 😂 (edited) 14mo
Cinfhen It‘s hard to think on the spot @GripLitGrl @CarolynM but still... those people seemed honestly clueless!!! 14mo
RachelO Wow, that's depressing! 14mo
Mdargusch That is so funny @Cinfhen and a little bit shocking that GWTW popped into your head! It is so unforgettable 😁 14mo
Cinfhen I thought you‘d appreciate that @Mdargusch #OhScarlett 💚🙌🏻 14mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks The librarian couldn‘t name a book?!?! Whaaatttt?!?! 😩😩 It pained me to watch that!! 14mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Trashcanman yes!!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 14mo
Bookzombie I would have just pulled the book I was reading out of my purse. 😉 14mo
Cinfhen Yeeeesssss!!!!! @Bookzombie 🙌🏻💕 14mo
Cinfhen That librarian obviously had a BIG BRAIN FART @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 14mo
Reviewsbylola I was hoping it was just the fact they were put on the spot. I‘m always bad when that happens. 😬 14mo

AudreyMorris I agree with them. I liked it better before the change. Now it seems like the same books get nominated for all the big prizes and that‘s silly and boring. 1y
readordierachel That's very interesting. Hey, if it's detracting from the diversity of the nominees/awardees, then by all means keep the US out. We have plenty of awards already. 1y
RowReads1 It doesn‘t bother me at all. It‘s what I‘m use to. Americans have only been considered for about four years now. Of course, I‘m not a writer. 1y

GarthRanzz But they need to not just pick on the US if they‘re going to do it. I don‘t like seeing the same books win every prize but to just exclude American authors who won two of the last four years since the change is a little drastic to me. (edited) 1y
Rachbb3 @GarthRanzz I agree. 1y
4thhouseontheleft I also liked it better before the change. Last year, I think 3 of the 6 shortlist authors were American, which was disappointing. Nothing against my fellow Americans, but I always liked the Booker Prize because it introduced me to new authors I likely otherwise wouldn‘t have found, like Arundhati Roy and Keri Hulme. 1y
diovival 🤔 1y
CarolynM I think there are other prizes that are just for UK authors (Costa?) And other countries have their own, so there's no real need for the Booker to be as restricted as it was. It's a shame the Commonwealth Writer's Prize has gone, though. 1y
Becker There are so many great American books but as their Canadian neighbour, I must say we are flooded with American titles. I much prefer hearing about lesser known authors (at least to me). It is a bit disappointing to see the same big American authors over and over. Having said that...I loved Lincoln in the Bardo and was glad it won.🤷‍♀️ 1y
