Musing Mondays


Here is today's question ------

Do you feel compelled to read prize-winning (Giller/Booker/Pulitzer etc) books? Why, or why not? Is there, perhaps, one particular award that you favour? (question courtesy of MizB)

I don't feel compelled to read award winning books. I will read reviews of them and if they appear interesting I might check them out. I'm not influenced solely by awards ,as I know myself what books I enjoy and usually my choice proves correct.

More book discussions can be found here.

And there are times when I just HATE the book that won the award and everyone loves.

Same here. My tastes seem to run in the opposite direction of the people who decide these things.
