This is my bookshelf.
Here is a snippet of what’s on it, ten at a time.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1943) by Betty Smith
All the Little Live Things (1967) by Wallace Stegner
Angle of Repose (1971) by Wallace Stegner
Crossing to Safety (1987) by Wallace Stegner
Dracula (1897) by Bram Stoker
Alice Adams (1921) by Booth Tarkington
Vanity Fair (1847-48) by William Makepeace Thackeray
A Confederacy of Dunces (1980) by John Kennedy Toole
Back When We Were Grownups (2001) by Anne Tyler
Three of these books have won the Pulitzer Prize. Any guesses as to which three?
And here’s a fun fact. That copy of Tarkington’s Alice Adams? It is the exact same copy I read when I checked it out from the library about 10 years ago. Later, they had a book sale and I bought it.
Have you read any of these?
