Calling all ye bookworms


Could you read 20 books in 28 days? Would you like to take part in a new BBC Four programme?

We’re looking for six enthusiastic, energetic and dedicated people to take part in this book marathon for a programme called Bookered Out. You don’t have to be a book worm or a literature buff to take part. Novice readers are more than welcome!

You'll need to read every book on this year's Booker Prize longlist and decide which six you would shortlist. In addition to reading the books, you must also keep a video diary of your month (cameras and training provided).

You have until Thursday 4 August to tell us why you think you're the perfect candidate. The Booker Prize longlist is published on Wednesday 10 August, and we will announce who has been selected shortly afterwards.

Go here to apply:

I totally applied for that.

I won't get it, and I feel dorky for even hoping.

But I do hope, just a little.

Of course! If only they shelled out good dinero for just such a way of spending the day.
