The Booker Prize is the leading literary award in the English speaking world, and had brought recognition, reward and readership to outstanding fiction for over 50 years. Each year, the prize is awarded to what is, in the opinion of the judges, the best novel of the year written in English and published in the UK. It is a prize that transforms the winner’s career.

This year’s longlist was announced on Wednesday 24 July and you can find out all about it on our News page

Reading groups are invited to pitch for their opportunity to shadow the Booker Prize this year. Twelve groups will be selected and will receive a set of copies of one of the shortlisted books. In exchange, the groups will read and review the shortlisted title with their group and take part in #BookerPrize2018 conversations online, joining in discussions about the books and sharing comments and pictures.

To apply, please log in and fill in your details below by 23 August.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
