  1. Inspired by your blog in so many ways....I am adding a Pulitzer Reading Challenge to my blog.
    No, I will not copy you list ....don't want to create ' another blog ' probleem like I did with the Nobels! :)

  2. My list of Pulitzer Prize winning books is extended to biography and history. There are just too many good books I would miss if I just read fiction.
    Finding that reading Pulitzers is more fun, vibrant than the Nobels. Pultizer was for one specific book and Nobels is based on Nobel on the body of work by an author. That can explain why I read some ' awful ' Nobel books!

  3. I find reading the Pulitzers much more enjoyable than the Nobels.
    Pulitzer was awarded for one specific book while the Nobels is based on a body of work by an author.
    That can explain why I stumbled upon some very boring reads (Contes de Provence, F. Mistral) (Révolte des Anges, Anatole France) (Au-dessus de la mêlée, Romain Rolland).

    1. I find the Pulitzer books more enjoyable too. I've had good intentions re some of the bio and science winners too, but haven't managed one yet.

      I've been trying to read the Noble book that was published stound the time the author was awarded the prize, thinking that it was this book that finally tipped the judges in their favour.
