Book Awards II

10 months. 10 award winners.

The challenge for Book Awards II will be slightly different. First of all, it will last for 10 months instead of 12. Since we had over 100 participants last time, there wasn’t room for everyone on the blog site due to blogger’s limitation of only 100 contributors. Taking off those two months will allow me to clean up the site and set up the next challenge. On July 15th, I’ll be deleting the participants from the first challenge UNLESS you’ve signed up for the new challenge. Your reviews won’t be deleted, you just won’t be able to post at the blog site anymore.

Rules:

  1. Read 10 award winners from August 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009.
  2. You must have at least FIVE different awards in your ten titles.
  3. Overlaps with other challenges are permitted.
  4. You don’t have to post your choices right away, and your list can change at any time.
  5. ‘Award winners’ is loosely defined; make the challenge fit your needs, keeping in mind Rule #2.
  6. SIGN UP here
  7. Have fun reading!

This will be my first book challenge. :O Here are my 10 books (they will probably change):

1. The Colour Purple by Alice Walker (1983 Pulitzer)
2. To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee (1961 Pulitzer)
3. Life of Pi by Yann Martel (2002 Booker)
4. Inglorious by Joanna Kavenna (2008 Orange)
5. The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night-Time by Mark Haddon (2003 Costa/Whitbread)
6. Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay (2007 Giller)
7. A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews (2004 Governor General)
8. The Law of Dreams by Peter Behrens (2006 Governor General)
9. Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding (1998 British)
10. Runaway by Alice Munro (2004 Giller)
11. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card (1986 Hugo)

Bold means I’ve read it, italics means I’m working on it.

I’ve mostly chosen books that I’ve planned to read for a while now, and the others are usually ones that I’ve heard of before.
