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.
