Tammy | 391 comments Welcome to your first BINGO, Gerard! Your list looks pretty much like my list from my crazy 88 personal challenge this year (I think 12 of your selections were on my list). Looks like you should have a really good year of reading lined up.

As for the Foreign Literary Prize you should consider looking up the Man Booker Prize or The Nobel Prize.

I agree the Man Booker Award list is quite good. There is also the National Book Awards. Their list is 2,600 different titles.

Terris | 2420 comments Wow, Gerard, I love your list! I've read 15 of them. You have a lot of good reading ahead! Two that I haven't read and am interested in are Pnin (which is sitting on my shelf right now!) and No Exit which I plan to start in the next couple of days. I hope you enjoy this Bingo Challenge. It's a lot of fun! Happy Reading :)
