60 Years of the National Book Awards November 11, 2009Posted by pupfiction in Uncategorized.
For its 60th anniversary of National Book Awards, the National Book Foundation decided to let the public vote on the last 77 fiction winners for their choice as the “Best of National Book Awards Fiction”. Unfortunately, the voting ended October 21st, but it’s fun to look at this visual list of all the past winners (each book cover links to a blog entry about the book). The winner will be announced on November 18th.
Whenever I see these lists I can’t help but to count how many I have read. This time I only got a (shameful) 5! How did you fare?
