Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The Pulitzer Awards go back to 1918, and there's already a list for them: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/16... .


message 2: by Nikki (new)

Nikki Miller This list is only for 1948-present, as listed in the title. The awards previous to that (1918-1948) were in the "Novel" category. The list you have linked to was incorrect at the time I had looked at it and included books that were not award winners, although it may have been corrected since then.


message 3: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Oct 17, 2012 11:26AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Well, do you want the pre-1948 winners removed?

Actually, the list description says "1938"; is this list for winners since 1938, or since 1948?


message 4: by msleighm (new)

msleighm It may have been corrected, I just spot checked the link and all of them were cited as winners.
