Read up to five books by a Nobel Prize-winning author. They don't have to all be by the same author.

Here is a link to a list of the Nobel Laureates in Literature.

This is a list of books by Nobel winners.

message 16: by Linda (new)

Linda | 92 comments Hey Stephanie, Just wanted to check and see if it is okay to include Nobel Prize winners' books who won in other categories (Peace). I was thinking about continuing reading Elie Wiesel's Night trilogy. I am also wanting to read Barack Obama's Audacity of Hope. Checking to see if I can put them in this category .

Good question, Linda. I've been thinking about this one as it is one of the more challenging categories this year. The category on the survey was listed as "Books by a Nobel Prize-winning author" but I didn't say it had to be a Nobel Prize for Literature.... So I think this one is open to a book by anyone who has won a Nobel Prize for any of the Nobel categories.


message 18: by Linda (new)

Linda | 92 comments Thanks! In that case I highly recommend I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban for this category. I read it last year for Bios and Memoirs and loved it. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.
