Booker Prize Project

About Booker Prize:
    The Man Booker Prize for Fiction (formerly known as the Booker-McConnell Prize and commonly known simply as the Booker Prize) is a literary prize awarded each year for the best original novel, written in the English language and published in the UK.
     From its inception, only Commonwealth, Irish, and South African (later Zimbabwean) citizens were eligible to receive the prize; in 2014, however, this eligibility was widened to any English-language novel.

About the project:
The idea to read all Booker Prize winner novels has stuck in my head for a couple of years already. The problem I faced was to get the actual books. Now it is much easier and so I decided to continue with the idea. So I start this project in January 2017 and will update this page regularly. We will see how many years it will take me to finish))
