Congratulations to Caitlin at chaotic compendiums for being the first participant to complete the 2010 Battle of the Prizes, American Version!
Caitlin read and reviewed the following three books for this challenge:
National Book Award - World's Fair by E.L. Doctorow (reviewed here)
Pulitzer Prize - Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry (reviewed here)
Double-Dipper - The Color Purple by Alice Walker (reviewed here)
She also wrote a very thoughtful wrap-up post about her three choices and the challenge.
Laura at Musings is close on Caitlin's heels. But Laura elected to read two Pulitzer winners and two National winners instead of one of each and a double-dipper. So she has one more book to go.
You can find the links to Laura's three-so-far reviews and other terrific reviews from challenge participants on the main challenge post..
Again, thanks to all the participants! And there is still plenty of time to sign up because the challenge involves reading only three books by the end of January 2010.
Congrats to those way ahead of me, and thanks for the reminder! I signed up a while ago, but need to update my progress list. It will show up on the blog soon.ReplyDelete
