I went shopping today with my Christmas present from the b/f's dad - $100 at Chapters! Love it. It was so hard to decide what to spend it on, when I could just wait a year for it to be available at the library.

But, once I started, it was hard to stop :)

From top to bottom:

1) The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz - Pulitzer Prize Fiction Winner - 2008
2) The Long Song - Andrea Levy - according to Heather (of Heather's Picks), she's at the top of her game with this novel
3)  The Help - Kathryn Stockett - soon to be a major motion picture - seems like an Ashley movie, therefore an Ashley book.
4) The Surrendered - Chang-Rae Lee -NYT bestselling author, and a staff pick (Carman). Well Carman, we'll see how it is, and Pulitzer Prize Fiction Finalist - 2010
5) A Visit from the Goon Squad - Jennifer Egan - Pulitzer Prize Fiction Winner - 2011 - let's see why this won...
6) Tinkers - Paul Harding - Pulitzer Prize winner - 2009 - It has one of those artsy covers that just makes you think it MUST be good. And it won a prize.

Hmmm - maybe I'll start a new list - Pulitzer Prize winning books in Fiction...
