Pulitzer Prize

This is a list of the books that have won the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction.  Titles in bold are the ones that I've read. I've had good experience with the Pulitzers, and look forward to reading more.  I have a personal ongoing/perpetual challenge to read these books.  Someday I'll have a bookshelf just for my Pulitzers...
