The Complete Booker

The Complete Booker
An Ongoing Challenge to Read All the Booker Prize Winners

My bookie soul-mate, Laura at Musings, is hosting an ongoing challenge with no time limit. The goal: to read every Booker Prize Winner. She’s started a group blog called The Complete Booker for participants to track their progress and post their reviews.

I’ll be posting there, but also keeping track here on my blog.
