Laura's 2008 Goals and Progress

  • Saturday, August 9, 2008

Like The Complete Booker and The Pulitzer Project, Read the Nobels is an opportunity to read award-winning authors. I read 3 Nobel winners in 2007, which is pretty pathetic progress. In 2008 I’d like to read another 8-10, several of which will also count for my personal Reading Across Borders challenge. These include:
Complete List of Nobels Read (with links to reviews where available):
2007 - Doris Lessing - Love, Again
2006 - Orhan Pamuk - My Name is Red (review)
2004 - Elfriede Jelinek - The Piano Teacher (review)
2003 - J. M. Coetzee - Elizabeth Costello
2002 - Imre Kertész - Kaddish for a Child not Born (review)
2001 - V.S. Naipaul - In a Free State (review)
1998 - Jose Saramago - Baltasar and Blimunda (review)
1993 - Toni Morrison - Song of Solomon, Beloved, Paradise, Love
1991 - Nadine Gordimer- The Conservationist (review)
1983 - William Golding - Lord of the Flies
1982 - Gabriel García Márquez - One Hundred Years of Solitude (review)
1962 - John Steinbeck - Grapes of Wrath (review), East of Eden (review)
1955 - Halldor Laxness - Independent People (review)
1954 - Ernest Hemingway - The Old Man and the Sea (review)
1938 - Pearl S. Buck - The Good Earth (review)

i don't think that's pathetic at all, laura (or i am even more pathetic hahaha). after all we have our other challenges and so many possibilities! read the nobels just opens us up to more possibilities.
