new years resolution

actually its more like a goal. i want to read all the books that have won the pulitzer for fiction since the beginning of the pulitzer which is apparently 1917. why? because i like to read i guess and these seems like a pretty good way to read some books i other wise wouldn't look at, but don't fret, some years they didnt give an award, so instead of reading 99 books i will only have to read 89. here's the list:
