What: New Author Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2009
Who: Jackie (Literary Escapism)
Rules: To read as many new-to-you authors as you think you can in one year. Novels preferred, but anthologies are also acceptable. Go here to learn more and to sign up. There is a separate blog for reviews.
I think this challenge will be an easy one for me to complete. About half the authors I read this year were new-to-me. I went on buying sprees and bought the first book in several series that I haven’t touched yet, so I’m looking at the possibility of reading 50 or more new authors in 2009.
However, that’s not going to be my goal for this challenge. I also want to read other books written by this year’s — and last year’s — crop of new-to-me authors.
With that in mind, my goal will be at least 12 new authors. Everything after that will be extra credit.
I will track my progress here.
