The Man Booker 50 Challenge

To celebrate its 50th year, the Man Booker Prize is challenging everyone to try and read 50 Booker winners before May, 2018!

To join the challenge, you must have a public Instagram account where you have to post the Booker award-winning books you’re going to read with the hashtag #ManBooker50.  Read as many Booker prize-winning novels before May 31, 2018 and get a chance to win 2 tickets to the Man Booker 50 festival, to be held in London.  You don’t have to be a resident of the U.K. to join, but you do need to get there on your own.

Booker prize-winning novels have been a particular favorite of mine to read, and based on my own record, I’m 32 books short of completing the list.  I don’t know if I can read 32 books in 5 months, but it would be fun to try!

So if you’re looking for a new reading challenge this 2018, give this one a try!  You never know, you might just win those coveted tickets!
