Increasing Length?

Even though I'm busier than ever this year, I'm still determined to read as many of the Whitney Award finalists as I can. I consider it a great privilege to be able to vote and I take it seriously. Right now I'm stuck in Undaunted. If I stay up for another 45 minutes or so, I should be able to finish it. The end is kind of dragging for me and I keep wanting to start another book, but I'm trying to be disciplined and read one book at a time. As it stands, I'm about half done the reading list.

Maybe it's because I have so many other things on my plate right now, but I'm convinced that the books (on average) are longer this year than last year. Maybe when life slows down a bit, I'll figure it out - just because I'm a little obsessive like that. Meanwhile, I'm off to go read into the wee hours of the morning. Tomorrow is just a bunch of housecleaning and I don't need to be totally awake for that, right?

You're so awesome! Reading ALL the book of the list is just cool.

Do you buy all the books or do you have the authors send a copy to you? That would be EXPENSIVE to buy all the books on the list.

Most of the books I can get from the library. Some of the books are made available to members of the voting academy in PDF form and I usually end up buying a few.

That would be so fun to read all the finalists. Kind of like a writing workshop in fiction form :-).
