Laura's 2009 Goals and Progress

The Orange Prize is my favorite award after the Booker Prize. In 2008, my Orange Prize Project goal was to read 4 winners or shortlisted works, and I read 5. In 2009 my goal is 8. I plan to complete the winners list, including the 2009 winner. I'll be doing most, if not all, of my Orange reading during "Orange January" and "Orange July. "

Orange Prize Winners Read in 2009 (Books will be listed as completed)
2008 - The Road Home (Tremain)
2003 - Property (Martin)
2000 - When I lived in Modern Times (Grant)
1999 - A Crime in the Neighborhood (Berne)
1998 - Larry's Party (Shields)
2009 - Home (Robinson)
