Ahh, those Booksluts. This is taking me a long time to do, and I keep losing track of the stuff that I’ve read that counts toward this challenge and what doesn’t, so I’m listing what I have to do, and what I might read for it. There are some listed here that I’ve tried to read and failed (’cause they were boring, or too dense for my tiny mind), but I’ve listed them here anyway so that I can keep track of them.
Three Full-Length books by Nobel Laureates:
The Cancer Ward Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn – boy, that was too much like hard work. Here’s what I thought of what I read though.

Three Full-Length novels that won Pulitzer Prizes:
Beloved Toni Morrison
Gone with the Wind Margaret Mitchell
Dragon’s Teeth Upton Sinclair
Three books that won the Man-Booker prize:
