    I've always wanted to host a Pulitzer Challenge; they are my favorite award winning literature. You have picked some wonderful reads, in my opinion: the best are A Death in The Family, Lonesome Dove, The Good Earth and All the Kings' Men. I have some I'd wipe from the list, but then it wouldn't be your list would it? I'm anxious to hear your thoughts.

    I just finished reading Gilead and am looking forward to seeing what you think about it as well. You've picked some really wonderful titles here.

    Thanks Bellezza and Verivore! Now, where to start? Top of list, bottom of list, or just what's hangin' 'round the house. ;D

    LOVED Gilead and The Stone Diaries.

    I'm reading The Known World, A Death in the Family, and the Yearling as well.

    Aren't you doing A Death in the Family as your Southern Reading Challenge book? Great to be able to kill one "mockingbird" with one stone. ;)

    Oh, I was amazed at the number of southern authors on the list, too.
