The Booker Prize con?

I’ve noticed that charity shops’ bookshelves are disproportionately littered with former winners and nominees of the Booker Prize.

Is this because people are conned into buying them and then realise they’re a bit too ‘wordy’ and convoluted?

Or maybe dead people like Booker Prize winners. They die, the possessions go to Oxfam.

I’d wonder if there’s an unusual amount of CDs being sold second-hand which were nominated for the Mercury Prize. How many Nitin Sawnhey albums have you got that you don’t want?
