Yes, the prize will be a gift box-set, either book or audio. I haven't specified a title, so that the winner can choose age-group.

And you're also correct with your other observation.

I notice that these lists repeatedly feature books that I remember you going on record as being distinctly underwhelmed by.

This isn't my sort of game, but if it were, I'd be digging through the archives, not consulting my own taste.

You never said what the prize was. Something book-shaped, I presume?
