List: Nobel Laureates



One of the reading lists I am working on is books by Nobel Laureates. I do not have specific books in mind; just the goal of reading at least one book by every recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. I am a member of the Read the Nobels group blog, although my participation is so lackadaisical, I might get the boot.

If anyone reading this has a similar goal and would like me to link their progress reports to this post, I am happy to do so. Leave a comment with your link and I will add it.

Here is the list of Nobel Laureates, starting with the most recent. If I have read any of the author's books, I listed the titles in red after the name; if I have books on my TBR shelf, they are listed in blue. I plan to eventually read something by everyone of these people, even if I have nothing on my TBR shelf right now. Although some may be hard to find as I look at names that ring no bells for me.
