    I had to do for potential nominees for the Radio 2 Bookclub I m not able to say whether or not it got through for Simon Mayo to read and discuss but I am pleased that my personal critical faculties seem to remain alert to some good writing when I see it Alongside the official Man Booker prize process the Guardian also runs a search for a Not the Booker Prize title Details of this can be seen here The prize is a Guardian Mug so its hardly invested with the razzamatazz of the official prize but it is a much more inclusive process for readers which I urge you all to take part in Currently 70 titles are listed from a wide range of publishers including many independents NB I note at least a couple of the official Booker longlist appear so I guess they are now ineligible here If you want to become part of this process all you have to do is vote for two books from the longlist from two different publishers and accompany those votes with a review of at least one of your chosen books Get voting The deadline is 23 39 BST on 2 August so it s a tight process Its only realistic to write a review of one you have read but your 2nd vote could go to an author or publisher you respect Bluemoose managed to win this once was it 2013 And I note they have 2 books on the list this time round including Colette Snowden s title The Secret to Not Drowning which is on my to read pile Last year s winner was Cumbria based Simon Sylvester who also appears on our website so this prize has done a great deal for northern writing and publishing to date Later in the process a shortlist is produced which readers also get a chance to vote on It s a bit of fun and an honourable adjunct to the official prize bringing a whole raft of excellent books to our attention Borderlines a personal perspective Posted Friday 24 July 2015 by Jane Mathieson in Events Why do I feel so excited about the Borderlines Book Festival I ve been to many a book festival over the last 2 or 3 decades I ve been to Hay to Edinburgh more than once I ve been closely involved with Manchester s over its lifetime and I ve attended one off festival events in a number of NW locations But to me there seems to be something special about Borderlines Partly its because its so new but seems so brave and ambitious Many festivals start small and aim to grow Borderlines started big and seems determined to continue to grow and attract attention In his introduction to this year s programme Hunter Davies Honorary President acknowledges this It is now so well established and embedded that it feels as if it has been going for ever Last year s inaugural festival
