I am wondering if anyone of you has read all the winners

I'll have to go through my books and check which I've read. I see a lot of familiar titles, but I don't know if it's because they are on the list of books I'm searching for or because i've read them. i put together a list of all the winners of a number of different literary prizes in author's name order that i use as a reference when i go to th used book store. It helps me look for specific authors and it also keeps me from buying the same book twice, or from not buying a book because I think I've read it when I've only read the flyleaf. It's hard to remember all the books you've read which is why LT has been great for me. I have a good start on all the books I've read, at least in the past few years.

The BookerPrize reading group is working their way through the winners and shortlisted novels, as well as those longlisted - the longlists have been published since 2000 or 2001.

The group is in fact scheduled to read and discuss two winners: G. by John Berger in September (which you don't have on your list yet) and Last Orders by Graham Swift in October.
Coming up in August is Shirley Hazzard's The Great Fire - while it only reached the Booker longlist, it won the National Book Award.
November will be Colm Toibin's The Blackwater Lightship.

Browsing through the handy-dandy lists of the Booker_winners and Booker_shortlist, I find that I tend to read several of a shortlist - there are multiple years where I have read three or four books from the shortlist+winner combination.
