RIF – Does anybody remember the acronym RIF – Reading is Fundamental?  Maybe I watched too much TV on Saturdays as a kid. Nonetheless, it seems as if the 2016 Man Booker List, which identifies titles that are in the running for the Man Booker Prize, has been published.  I’ve read through this year’s list and have identified one or two titles that I’ll probably pick up.  Last year Marlon James won the top spot with “A Brief History of Seven Killings.”  While there were a couple of dry spots in the book, overall it was very enjoyable and definitely worth a read.  I hope the titles on this year’s Man Booker List are as enjoyable.  Take a look at the list via the link below.  You might find a few titles that pique your curiosity.

The authors in the running for Britain’s most prestigious literary award include three debut novelists.
