Book Awards Reading Challenge

A year ago I posted a list of the twelve award-winning books that I planned to read for the Book Awards Reading Challenge. I ended up reading four of those - and another seven award-winners - which is almost the twelve books of my goal. These are the books I read:

  • American Born Chinese

  • Call It Courage

  • Dear Mr. Henshaw

  • The Devil in the White City

  • Eats, Shoots & Leaves

  • Flowers for Algernon

  • The Giver

  • Holes

  • The Hours

  • Speak

  • The View from Saturday

Host Michelle (3M) is now gearing up for Book Awards II. Of course, I want in on that too. Among the rules:
  • Read ten award winners from August 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009.

  • Include at least FIVE different awards in your ten titles.
Choices don't have to be posted right away, and lists can change at any time.

Around August 1, I'll post a list of some of my possible choices. I'll be keeping track of my progress in my sidebar.


  1. Congratulations on completing the challenge! I signed up again, too. :)

  2. I have also signed up for the new Book Awards Challenge.

  3. Well, I did it! I signed up for the new challenge and posted it on our website. This is a big step for me: my first reading challenge. It's a little scary, but I'm going to do it, thanks to you, friend.

  4. I didn't do so well with my original list either. Only read five of them. I know I read at least a few others that weren't on my original list, but I was too lazy to try to figure out where I stood. I decided I'm just going to try to redeem myself with Book Awards II. :) Looks like you got some great books read, huh?
