    Thanks for hosting this challenge - I really enjoyed it.

    I really enjoyed this challenge! I finished Middlesex this morning, and decided not to read "The Shipping News". I did, however, read a few extras along the way, so I came in with 16 books. It was a lot of fun. Thank you so much for hosting!

    This has been a great challenge and I hope it starts over in some form or fashion (or the same one) in July!

    Thanks for hosting this challenge. Can you believe that this was the second challenge that I signed up for - almost a year ago? =)


    I misread the date on this challenge. Please remove me from the list. I thought that it started at the begining of this year. Sorry. Judy

    Thanks for hosting such a great challenge. I do have to admit that I got a little bogged down with the posting of reviews. But, I've finished! :)

    I finished my 12 and have posted on the blog. Thanks for hosting, I loved the challenge and look forward to the second round.

    I finished and posted my link above :) Thanks for hosting, Michelle!

    Finished! Thanks for hosting it, I'm looking forward to Book Awards II!

    Dear 3M,

    What a wonderful concept. Thank you for you excellent blog and to all the contributors who make it a pleasure to visit. It is uplifting to see so many people taking-up the challenge- with such a great range of genres to boot.

    My own Book Award challenge is a daily ritual. Initially I couldn't find the information I wanted about literary awards, so, like yourself, I decided to post a small web site with award details. Lo, verrily and behold six months later I find myself consumed with Book Award World and publishing literary award sites, one each in the USA, UK and Australia! Fortunately I am at the stage of life where I can follow my passion for fine literature , although, with four young children (ah Children's Award books, what pleasures) I will have to focus on making a real living again at some stage!

    I have an on-going pile of award winning books and, whilst I speed read , I intend to savour each book slowly to keep faith with our 'life in the slow lane' ethos, as my wife and I call it.

    With thanks for a grand blog,

    in literary reverie and respect to all those who met the challenge.

    Kevin Parker aka Award Tragic

    ps: as a anglo-aussie it's great to see the Miles Franklin on the eligible books. This years winner, The Time We have Taken, by Steve Carroll, is recommended for any one who would like to sample a slice of Austrlalian surban life. Lovely book.

    I read 13 books. I'm looking forward to Book Awards II. Here's a list of my completed books:

    1. Dear Mr. Henshaw by Beverly Cleary (8/14/07)
    2. The Road by Cormac McCarthy (9/14/07)
    3. Rabbit Hill by Robert Lawson (9/25/07)
    4. Sounder by William H. Armstrong (9/27/07)
    5. Missing May by Cynthia Rylant (11/13/07)
    6. Criss Cross by Lynne Rae Perkins (11/20/07)
    7. Dicey’s Song by Cynthia Voigt (12/7/07)
    8. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry (1/7/08)
    9. The Summer of the Swans by Betsy Byars (1/30/08)
    10. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien (2/22/08)
    11. From the Mixed-Up Files of Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg (2/23/08)
    12. The Midwife’s Apprentice by Karen Cushman (4/13/08)
    The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison (4/27/08)

    3M, thanks for hosting this challenge. I found writers and books I probably wouldn't have read until later in life. I can't wait for August and the BA2 challenge!

    Great challenge. I'll definitely ibe in for round 2. With round one I wound up with extra books. A handwritten list didn't match up to my original list. I'll have to be more careful this time.

    Thank you so much for hosting this challenge! I enjoyed it, and really broadened my reading experiences.

    I finished my last book on June 27th, but procrastinated posting about it. My last three books were We Need to Talk About Kevin (Orange Broadband, 2005); The God of Small Things (Man Booker 1997) and Such a Long Journey (Governor General 1991)
