Nobel Prize of Literature

As a librarian, I must admit to being woefully behind on my reading of the Nobel laureates.

I’ve read works by Bjørnson (1903), Kipling (1907), Lagerlöf (1909), Hamsun (1920), Yeats (1923), Shaw (1925), Undset (1928), Buck (1938), Eliot (1948), Faulkner (1949), Hemingway (1954), Steinbeck (1962), Beckett (1969), Golding (1983), Gordimer (1991), Morrison (1993), Heaney (1995), Pinter (2005), and Lessing (2007).

Most of these can be blamed on the year I had English literature at uni, before taking up library science.

How many have you read?
