Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about award winning books…

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?

Just One More Page

On a certain level, I guess you can say I feel somewhat compelled to read prize-winning novels just to see why they won that particular award and whatnot. Usually the premise of the books that win don’t really appeal to me so I don’t bother checking them out though but there’s the occasional moment where I’d be interested in a particular book and if it happens to have been short-listed or if it won an award, I’ll be more compelled to read it. I believe I’m drawn more towards books that were short-listed or were Booker prize winners (again based on whether I was interested in the premise of the novel or whatnot).

lol, I hope that answer makes sense xD
