The Pulitzer Project

Welcome to the Pulitzer Project. The goal of the participants of this site is to read all 84 books that have won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. There is no time limit.

You may participate solely on your own blog (and I will link to it at right) or post to this one. Anyone interested in participating on this blog should submit an email address in a comment to this post. To prevent spamming of the email, please submit it in a format similar to the following: janedoe--gmail or janedoe atttt gmail dotttt commm.

You may post a review of each book you've read, even if it was several years ago. Or, you could also put the year read beside the title and not do a full review. It's up to you.

If you are a participant on this particular blog, please follow these guidelines for labeling:
1) Always use your name as a label.
2) "Progress" should be used for list updates.
3) For each book read, use the year won and the title of the book. See the August 2007 entries for an example.

Hi! Thanks for the invite! Sure, I'd like to be added to this blog. I'm reading them in order from the beginning and I'm up to Alice Adams now. I haven't been able to work on my blog lately so I haven't been posting very much about it but I will soon! Thanks again! Camille

I'd like to participate. My eamil is sherryDOTearlyATgmailDOTyouknowwhat

I have some reviews alredy posted at Semicolon that I could copy/cross post to this blog, and then I'll make up a post of books already read and the ones I'm interested in reading soon.

Dewey said...

So exciting! A challenge with no time limit. I love this idea, and I would like to participate. My email is dewpie gmail. I know I will post all reviews in my own blog, but I would also like to be able to post them here, if that's ok. Thanks for starting this!

Suey said...

I'd like to join this one, since it's sort of a subconcious goal to make my way through these books anyway. Might as well make it official.

Stephanie said...

You are SUCH a temptress!! I have always wanted to read the entire list. I even printed out a bunch of copies of the Pulitzers, the Bookers, the Edgar's, etc. with hopes of getting to them all some day. I think out of all the Pulitzers, I've only read 3! Isn't that sad? Though I do have a few on the list for the Book Awards challenge.

So, I guess that's my wordy way of saying...sign me up!!

Lee's River said...

Oh, Lord. I dropped in from the individual voice's blog. I have a novel presently going through Phase 1 of the publishing process (i.e. being rejected by every agent who receives it.) In it, there's an alcoholic who has worked the Pulitzer Prize List into his personal 12-step sobriety program.

So now - something new to worry about: What if the book ever gets published in my lifetime? You guys are going to think I got the idea over here when I didn't and then...(haven't worked out the catastrophic implications of that yet but trust me, I will.)
P.S. Yours is a great project. Can't join in right now; my local library doesn't do Pulitzer, unfortunately.

Andrea said...

I wish I had found this site awhile ago since I am now reading my 55th Pulitzer (The Known World). I am jumping around the list in no particular order, and I've been at it almost exclusively for about 2 years. It is difficult to find some of the older winners without spending some money. That's okay - because it's part of the fun! kelberts at yahoo dot com.

Please add me. I would like to take this on as a personal growth challenge. After reading this list, (for the first time, sad as it sounds), I realized that I have seen many of the movie adaptations - but have only read a few of the novels. My bad entirely, and one which I would like to rectify.

I have a few books already lined up in queue for that blog (and, unfortunately, am backlogged on reviewing ones I've already completed since April) but I'm going to slate myself to start this challenge in early summer. To my pleasant surprise, I've already read a few of the books...but I'm going to challenge myself to go through and read them all in order of the year they were awarded.

Thanks for hosting such a cool site!

I stumbled across this notable site by the purest chance. I have read 30-some Pulitzers; currently I am reading The Known World. My goal this month is to finish all the books of the "aughts" decade. I will start on the 20s next. For some reason, these are the decades for which I have the fewest titles remaining. I am so happy to find this site of like-minded people!!

I found this site when I searched online to see if Early Autumn had sequel, which led me to We Came Along with a Hammer, which linked here.
I'm reading a majority of the Pulitzer winners, plus a bunch of books from Harvard Classics, Great Books, and Nobel winners. Partially for fun, enlightenment, exposure to Great Literature, partially because I'm thinking about going to grad school for English.

Finally finished all the Pulitzer Fiction Books in 2009. Onward and Upward to the other Pultizer Categoies. The Last Fiction book IO read was Dragon's Teeth by Upton Sinclair. This is a very good series and I want to read the rest of the books in the series.

I didn't know a sight like this existed. I started reading before I found out about the challange.

George said...

American Lion is the Last Pulitzer book I've read. It's a Biography of Andrew Jackson's Presidency and give a lot of interesting peronal facts and cover's the major issues. I belive this is a period of American History that gets lost in the school and every American should be aware of the issues during this time and how they affect us today

Hey there,

A friend and I are currently on a journey that I have a feeling you and your readers would like to, not necessarily experience or have a part of, but follow. You can check it out at

What you're doing here is a great and good thing -- thank you so much for your dedication in keeping the legacy of these books and authors alive! I've really liked perusing through some of the titles and reading the reviews.

Feel free to email me at drewmoody 3 2 1 at G mail.

I have just finished reading all the Pulitzers on the list! My last one was "The Store" by T.S. Stribling. Although now that the latest one was announced, I guess that's one more to read. I've been working on this on and off since 2003 and have gotten pretty serious in the last few years and exclusively reading only Pulitzers.

I started in 2005 with a goal of reading all the winners since my birth year (1959) following a circuitous route. I first read Jhumpa Lahiri's Interpreter of Maladies, then went forward, then back toward 1959. I read a decade's worth of winners each year. Last year I started from 1918 and His Family. Now I'm in the 20's and about to start The Able McClaughlins. It's been a great journey and helped me through some tough times. Glad to join.
