Book Awards Challenge

This is my first book challenge that I have signed up for - but pretty sure that I will sign up for more today - now that I have a blogspot... The rules for my first challenge are as follows:
Read 10 award winners from August 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009.
You must have at least FIVE different awards in your ten titles.
Overlaps with other challenges are permitted.
You don't have to post your choices right away, and your list can change at any time.
'Award winners' is loosely defined; make the challenge fit your needs, keeping in mind Rule #2.

I am going to post my list of books later, as soon as I have a chance to go through some award sites!

Ok - here is my list of some possible books:
1. Never Let Me Go - Kazua Ishiguro (Alex Award)
2. The House on Mango Street - Sandra Cisneros (American Book Award)
3. Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen (Alex Award 2007)
4. From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler - E.L. Konigsburg (Newberry 1968)
5. The Gathering - Anne Enright (Man Booker - 2007

I will have to choose the next 5 after I finish these!

Cormac McCarthy - The Road - Bookseller's Award
Nancy Pickard - The Virgin of Small Plains (Agatha Awards)
Sachar, Louis - Holes (Newberry Award and National Book Award)
Amy Tan - The Joy Luck Club (National Book Award)
Powers, Richard - - The Echo Maker - National Book Award
