Setting restrictions on what books can be submitted is an effective way of keeping the number of books that must be considered manageable -- though it is not clear that the restrictions are always necessary. The list of Booker nominees appears to generally hover between 100 and 150, but the far more open Pulitzer reportedly only had 800 nominations for all five letters categories (an average of only 160 titles per category (Fiction, Biography, General Non-Fiction, History, and Poetry)).
