  1. I see you’re planning to tackle the Pulitzers. Good luck finding some of those older titles. Your library will come in handy.

  2. You’re so right. Even my library doesn’t have them all. I got “His Family” on e-book, but most of the later ones are post-copyright. So I’m going to have to hunt around for “The Able McLaughlins” and “Scarlet Sister Mary.”

    You’d think, considering there are only 82 winners of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, that even a really broke library could focus on completing this collection!
