List of the Day: Pulitzer Prize (Redux)

This Snow Day has given me an opportunity to go back and fix some glitches in earlier posts. I have redone my Pulitzer Prize Winners list so that all the links work correctly. With a new year looming, my book lists are clamoring for attention. Maybe 2009 will be the year I focus on finishing the books on the Pulitzer list, although there are other lists that are ticking my fancy more, or that I am closer to finishing so am antsy to turn to. We'll see how the next year of reading unfolds. Many of the Pulitzer winners that I have not read yet are the older ones that are hard to find. Perhaps a good 2009 goal would be to read the ones already on my TBR shelf (those in red) and acquire some of the others for future reading. These are the Pulitzer winners that I have yet to read: 1918: His Family by Ernest Poole 1922: Alice Adams by Booth Tarkington 1923: One of Ours by Willa Cather 1924: The Able McLaughlins by Margaret Wilson 1925: So Big by Edna Ferber 1926: Arrowsmith by Sinclair Lewis 1927: Early Autumn by Louis Bromfield 1929: Scarlet Sister Mary by Julia Peterkin 1930: Laughing Boy by Oliver Lafarge 1931: Years of Grace by Margaret Ayer Barnes 1933: The Store by T.

  1. I've read surprisingly few of the Pulitzers. I did read March, which I really enjoyed, although I wasn't very fond of Mr. March as a "person". On my shelves I have The Known World and The Road. I had made a half-hearted attempt to read The Known World but had a really hard time getting into it.
