I can't believe I'm doing ANOTHER challenge. This makes three for me, which, I know, is nothing compared to what some of you other book crazies do! But, they really are quite fun, aren't they?
This challenge is all about reading stuff that has won an award of some kind. Hosted by 3M and all the details found here.
I made up the list for this challenge using only books I already have (except two and one is on the way from PBS!)
So here's my list for THIS challenge (which I'll also put on the sidebar soon):
1. The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood (Booker 2000)
2. Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner (Pulitzer 1972)
3. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon (Pulitzer 2001)
4. The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro (Booker 1989)
5. Possession: A Romance by A. S. Byatt (Booker 1990)
