One down! I love this challenge. The books are so rewarding and I finally read books that have been on my list for years.

One question regarding this category. Should the book have won an award or can we read any book by an author who has won a prize say the Nobel?

Sarah Reads Too Much said...

If you are looking at Nobel winners, you could read anything by the author who won but should probably focus on one of the more notable works. If looking at the Pulitzer, etc. it would be specific to the book that won the award.

It was good to read this book again after 5 years... I saw a lot more things in it. More poignant this time.

I finished my third book for this challenge. This is a fun one because it has really encouraged me to read some of the books that have sat for too long on my TBR shelf.

I picked the Pulitzer-prize-winner The Yearling and I was surprised to find that I loved it!

The Good Earth, by Pearl S Buck, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1932, which i find surprising. I'm sure there must have been better novels published that year. As you can tell, I didn't enjoy this.

Not sure I have linked correctly..

I committed to reading "The Color Purple" for the Classic Award Winner category but I just can't do it! I found it boring and overly complicated. I guess I'm missing something since so many people like it and it's been made into a movie and Broadway show. Unfortunately, this one's going in the Did Not Finish pile... :(

My award winner is the winner of the Bancroft Prize for history. It was a huge chunkster, but definitely worth the read.

Okay - now I'm caught up and you won't have to deal with a slew of comments from me! I read The Color Purple and it was by far the most powerful (and disturbing) book I've read this year. It won the Pulitzer and was nominated for a National Book Award in the early 80s.

Thanks for hosting! It's really gotten me to read books I never would have picked up on my own.

I finally read an American novel! I've never read Wharton before. Thanks for prodding me into action!

I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would. Can't wait to read the Illiad!

Ack! First I accidentally submitted two novels. The correct novel for the award category is Fahrenheit 451, I accidentally put The Odyssey. Please delete that one if you can. Thank you and I'm so sorry.
Secondly, Fahrenheit 451 is probably one of my favorite books now. So glad I read it.
