and the winner is . . . .

Nothing sells a book faster than when it garners one of the coveted awards or selections like the National Book Award, the New York Time's best book, or being picked for Oprah's Book Club. Just this past week another big name in the world of letters, the Pulitzer Prize, announce its winners. Here's the list of books that won, but I'd also suggest taking a look at the website of another notable, which shared the award for investigative journalism with the Philadelphia News.

FICTION - Tinkers by Paul Harding

HISTORY - Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World by Liaquat Ahamed

BIOGRAPHY - The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles

POETRY - Versed by Rae Armantrout

GENERAL NONFICTION- The Dead Hand: The Untold Story of the Cold War Arms Race and Its Dangerous Legacy by David E. Hoffman
