Richard and Judy Smile

Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan have announced their selections for their 2008 book club, according to The Guardian.
Modelled on the phenomenally successful book club section of Oprah Winfrey’s US talk show, Richard and Judy’s book club has proven just as great a sensation in the UK. Those who make the final list can expect to see themselves transformed overnight from jobbing novelists into household names, and are virtually guaranteed bestseller status.

Here’s the list:
  • Blood River by Tim Butcher (Chatto and Windus)
  • A Quiet Belief In Angels by RJ Ellory (Orion)
  • Then We Came To The End by Joshua Ferris (Viking)
  • Notes From An Exhibition by Patrick Gale (Fourth Estate)
  • The Welsh Girl by Peter Ho Davies (Sceptre)
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini (Bloomsbury)
  • Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones (John Murray)
  • The Rose of Sebastopol by Katharine McMahon (Weidenfeld & Nicolson)
  • Random Acts of Heroic Love by Danny Scheinmann (Doubleday)
  • Visible World by Mark Slouka (Portobello Books)
