The Pulitzer Project: 2009 Goals & Progress

I started this perpetual challenge in 2007, and in 2008, my goal was to read 8-10 Pulitzer winners.  I read 8 and have now read 20 of the more than 80 winners.  I'm less committed to completing this challenge than to just enjoying good literature.  My 2009 goal is to read at least 6, including the 2009 winner
