Pulitzer Prize Challenge 2012

Hey Everyone, Happy New Year.  In 2012 I am hosting The Pulitzer Prize Challenge for the first time. There are several genres of books that have won the Pulitzer dating back as far as 1917 and as long as I can remember I have been wanting to read ALL the books in the fiction category.  Although I do like to read some of the winners from other categories as well. I never seem to advance far in my goal because there are so many great books out there, so to encourage and challenge myself to reach this goal, I decided to host the challenge.  I hope you will join me.
Below are the categories or genres with a link to the list of winners.
Biography or Autobiography
1917-present
Drama
1917-present
Fiction
1948-present
General Nonfiction
1962-present
History
1917-present
Music
1943-present
Novel
1917-1947
Poetry
1922-present

There will be 3 levels to attain.i
Gold Medal:  Read 12 Pulitzer Prize winning books from any genre equaling 1 book per month.
Silver Medal:  Read 6 Pulitzer Prize winning books from any genre. This equals 1 book every other month.
Bronze Medal:  Read 4 Pulitzer Prize winning books from any genre.  This equals 1 book per season or quarter.
I am hoping to achieve the Gold Medal level.
