The Pulitzer Project: 2010 Goals and Progress

I’ve been working on this perpetual challenge since 2007.  In 2009, my goals was to read 6 Pulitzer winners, and I achieved that goal.  I’ve now read more than 25 of the 80+ winners, and I’ve decided I’m not really trying to complete the list; however, there is some good literature to be found here!  My 2010 goal is to read another 6, including the 2010 winner.
