Best use of a mobile phone by a lady.

Here’s the shortlist for the Orange Prize. Knock yourselves out.

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel
On Beauty by Zadie Smith
The Accidental by Ali Smith
Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living by Carrie Tiffany
The Night Watch by Sarah Waters

Although this tells you everything you need to know:

“Booksellers hail shortlist for £30,000 award”
Go here then; see if I care. Traitor.

I think this list is spolit by the absence of Marian Keyes. The little literary pixie herself. Makes a mockery.
