Win the Man Booker prize shortlist

11th November 2005 at 00:00
Readers are really in for a treat this week - we've got 10 sets of the six novels shortlisted for this year's Man Booker Prize to give away. The annual prize, and a cheque for pound;50,000, was awarded to the Irish author John Banville for The Sea, "a masterly study of grief, memory and love recollected". Also on the shortlist were Arthur and George by Julian Barnes, A Long, Long Way by Sebastian Barry, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, The Accidental by Ali Smith, and Zadie Smith's On Beauty.

Each set of hardbacks, with an RRP of pound;99, comes courtesy of the Book People, one of the UK's leading online and catalogue booksellers. Visit to see their huge stock of discounted titles.

For your chance to win, answer this question. What did AS Byatt, who won the Booker in 1990 for Possession, spend the prize money on: a conservatory, a swimming pool or a loft conversion?
