Another interesting question for Musing Monday (hosted by Just One More Page. )
Do you feel compelled to read prize-winning (Giller/Booker/Pulitzer etc) books? Why, or why not? Is there, perhaps, one particular award that you favour? (question courtesy of MizB)
I really don’t pay any attention to prize lists for books. I find that most of the time, I don’t really like the books that win. I do follow the lists and I might check a book or two out of the library if they seem interesting but I never feel that I “must” read the winner. I would be more likely to read a Booker or a Pulitzer prize winner than any other. I find that of the award winning books I have read, most of them are winners of those two awards.
