A slight obsession with books

Booker prize winners

The following is a list of the Booker prize winners. Having read several of them due to their inclusion on the 1001 list, I’ve decided to track how many of them I’ve read and perhaps seek out a few more. Many of them are on the 1001 list so I’d get to them eventually, but as I’ve enjoyed the ones that I’ve read, I may put these to the top of my wish list.

Ones I’ve read are highlighted, and ones on the 1001 list have the text in blue.
