Monday Musings


This one is about award winners.

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?

This was submitted by Miz Q.

I don’t think that I necessarily feel compelled to read award winning novels. If I need an idea for anoter book to read, I always start at the awards list. It is the first place that I can go to for ideas as to what to read next. I think that it’s good to read the classics and other award winners because it’s good to be able to talk about them with others and, in my case, my kid will probably at some point read them and I really think that it’s important to keep on top of the material that he’ll be exposed to.  I totally have high expectations of myself and being the uber-educated mom that can talk about anything with her son.
