There always seem to be controversy over some of the choices for winners of some of the major book awards - so let's hear what you have to say! Pick some award winning books, read them, and then we'll talk about it. Book awards have many different categories - so feel free to pick books from any (or all) of them. Every month I will post a recap of the books that I (and anyone else who wants to participate) reads and reviews.
If you Do want to participate: Choose the level you wish to participate at.
Level 1 - Gold - Read 10+ books
Level 2 - Silver - Read 6 - 9 books
Level 3 - Bronze Read 1-5 books
* Link to your "commitment" post in the comments below (you don't have to choose your books in advance). If you don't have a blog, just leave a comment letting us know which level you'll be participating at.
* While you don't have to have a blog, your book review must be published online somewhere (e.g. Goodreads, Amazon, Shelfari), so that I can link to it in the monthly progress post.
Here's a list of a few Literary Awards to get you started on selecting your books.
- National Book Critics Awards
- Pulitzer Prize
- Edgar Awards
- Commonwealth Writers Prize
- Orange Prize
- Hugo Awards
- Man Booker Prize
- National Book Awards
