The Complete Booker 2010 Challenge

January 1 - December 21, 2010

There are some changes to this very popular perpetual challenge beginning in 2010. Laura writes:
The Complete Booker originated in August, 2007 to bring together book lovers and book bloggers interested in reading winners of The Man Booker Prize for Fiction. In 2008 we also began posting reviews of short- and long-listed nominees. The challenge blog is now approaching 300 posts, and well over 200 of these are reviews. If you're working towards reading the entire winners list, do you need a little motivation to continue? Have you thought about joining, but shied away from the commitment to read such a long list of books? There are many ways to approach the Booker Prize list, and The Complete Booker aims to please. So in 2010, there will be additional ways to participate.
For the 2010 Complete Booker Challenge, choose a participation level:
  • Winners Circle: read at least 6 winners
  • Contender: read at least 6 shortlisted nominees
  • Longshot: read at least 6 longlisted nominees
  • Booker Devotee: choose a year, and read all 6 shortlisted works from that year
  • Booker Fanatic: choose a year, and read all 13 long- and shortlisted works from that year
  • Overlaps with other challenges are permitted.
  • Book selections don't have to be posted right away, and lists may be changed at any time.
  • Post reviews at the challenge blog by sending an email to the moderator
Please note, the perpetual challenge is still in effect!!
