2010 Author Challenge

I've decided to join in this challenge next year. I tend to read a lot of new authors, so it seems perfect for me.

I'm going to pick the lucky number of 15, meaning my goal is 15 new authors next year. I realize that I've read more this year, but I'm actually thinking I need to read more of th books I already own and authors I already love, and accept less review books - so I'm anticipating that I won't have as many new authors but still want to make sure I read some new authors.

The New Authors Challenge is being hosted by Literary Escapism, click HERE to go to the challenge post and sign-up page.

Here are the rules for the challenge:
1. J anuary 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010.

2. Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels. Anthologies are a great way to try someone new, but only a third of your new authors can be from anthologies.

3. I want this to be an easy challenge, so you can pick to do either 15, 25 or 50 new authors. It all depends on how fast you read and how adventurous you want to be. For me, I’m trying another 50 new authors. If you reach your goal halfway through the year, don’t stop. Any new author you try can be added to Mr. Linky. We all want to know about your new experience.

4. After reading your new author, write your review and then come back here and add your link to Mr. Linky. Make sure you include your name and the author, but adding the title is completely up to you.

5. Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome
