Challenge Progress: The Sunshine Smackdown -- Battle of the Prizes

We have a couple of reviews to add to the Battle of the Prizes Challenge list. First, Caitlin at Chaotic Compendiums posted her review of Pulitzer winner Empire Falls by Richard Russo. Caitlin has now finished her National winner (Sophie's Choice, which she reviewed here) and her Pulitzer winner. She only has her "double dipper" to go and she will be the first to complete the challenge. Second, I finished my Pulitzer choice, Advise and Consent by Allen Drury. My review is posted here. Finally, as a little extra, I also reviewed March, the 2006 Pulitzer winner by Geraldine Brooks. That review is here.


  1. Don't know if I'll be first or not. My double dipper is short stories - purposely chosen because I'm always reluctant to read them even though I enjoy them when I do. I'm eyeing the book warily at the moment. =]

  2. I am the same way about short stories! Exactly. That is partly the reason I chose Goodby, Columbus for my National winner.

    Good luck with yours. I look forward to your review.
