Booker Yawns

I see the 2008 Booker shortlist is out. My only interest in the Booker is that every single year, without having read any of the titles, I correctly predict which one will win and then wish I'd nipped down to the bookie's. Of this year's offerings, the two I would actually like to read are The Clothes on Their Backs and The Northern Clemency so I should cross those two off your list of potential winners right now.
