Pompey book up for Sports Book Prize

Pompey book up for Sports Book Prize
Surely we could rig the vote somehow? I haven't read it yet but I'm sure it's a good read.

I've just this minute ordered it (£7.00 on Amazon - £16.99 in waterstones !!) it so i'll have something to read on holiday (if it comes before friday) ,,,,,,, Looks pretty good, its about an American sports journalist who follows the premiership for a sasonn and adopts Pompey as his team.. sounds (from the reviews like a bit of a giggle) If I finish it on hols I'll do a review when I get back

The judging panel for the 2007 William Hill Sports Book of the Year is: John Gaustad (chairman), Paul Hayward, Danny Kelly, John Inverdale, Hugh McIlvanney and Alyson Rudd. 19 years old this year, the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award (in association with Waterstone’s) is the world’s longest established and richest sporting literary prize. Not only does the winner receive an £18,000 cash prize and a specially bound hand-bound copy of the winning book but also the opportunity for untold wealth in the guise of a free £2,000 bet. The provisional date for the 2007 shortlist, to be announced on BBC 5Live’s Simon Mayo programme, is 18th October. The winner will be announced on 26 November at Waterstone’s Piccadilly.

Just off to Spain for a few days or so, taking the kids (6 months & 3 yrs) on their first flight (God help me !) Am hoping to get some peace an quiet (away from work at least) but doubt if it'll happen - I just hope the book arrives before we go (early Friday) but looking dodgy with the postal strike and all that ..
