Aubrey (korrick) | 2435 comments You definitely can't go wrong with Morrison as your choice for Nobel Prize for Lit.


message 13: by Kathleen (new)

Kathleen | 3667 comments You've got some of favorite authors picked out as possibilities: Morrison, Walker, Allende, Roy, and of course George Eliot. I'm excited to follow your challenge!


message 14: by siriusedward (last edited Dec 07, 2018 05:54AM) (new)

siriusedward (elenaraphael) | 2011 comments Morrison/Walker/Allende/Roy are new to me.
Of course Eliot is a favorite .And readling her books is a lovely experience.

Bingo has done one really great thing for me..it has made me more conscious of the writers in my country... Roy/Sunlight on a Broken Column /Twilight in Delhi /Khasakinte Ithihasam.
Hope to get to them next year.As this year I couldn't.

Tammy | 391 comments I love Toni Morrison (and Song of Solomon is probably my favorite of hers). She's well worth a try. Looks like you are having fun with the planning and I look forward to seeing what you finally end up with. Good luck in 2019!
