Quick--you have a month to read (or re-read) six wonderful books and pick your favorite. The folks at the National Book Awards are looking for you to pick the best fiction-winner in the sixty years the awards have been around. The finalists have already been chosen and were announced today.

They are "The Stories of John Cheever," by, well, John Cheever, of course; "Invisible Man," by Ralph Ellison; "Collected Stories of William Faulkner" by William Faulker; "The Complete Stories of Flannery O'Connor" by (do I need to tell you?) Flannery O'Connor; "Gravity's Rainbow" by Thomas Pynchon; and "The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty" by (you're getting good at this) Eudora Welty.

You can vote online through Oct. 21 right here.

The winner will be announced Nov. 18.
