The Complete Booker: 2009 Goals & Progress

I’ve followed the Booker Prize for a long time, and always enjoy reading winners and shortlisted works.  In 2007, I began hosting The Complete Booker to encourage others to join me in reading works by these great authors. In 2008, my goal was to read at least 6 Booker winners, and I read 11 !  I've now read 22 of the 41 winners.  My 2009 goal is to read 12, including the 2009 winner.  At that rate, I expect to complete the winners list in 2010!
