Complete Booker – 2008 Goals & Progress

I’ve followed the Booker Prize for several years now, and started The Complete Booker to encourage others to join me in reading works by these great authors. I read 4 Booker winners in 2007, so I’ll begin 2008 having read 11 of the 41 winners. Not that I need any motivation, but I’m also going to participate in Dewey’s Man Booker Challenge!
 

Before the year is out, I’d like to read at least 6 Booker winners, including:
