New Authors Challenge 2010

Literary Escapism hosts this awesome challenge, and I could not pass it up. I already give myself a goal each year to read the works of new authors, and this will just make the challenge even more fun!

January 1st, 2010 - December 31st, 2010

Guidelines

1. The challenge will run from January 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.

I'm personally going to choose to do the 50 new authors. I've already read over 50 books for this year, and have read nearly 30 new authors. That is only since starting my blog, so I can only imagine what the coming year has in store for me. I will list them as I go!

Good luck with the challenge! I completed this one already with 25 authors. I'll definitely be shooting for more next year.

I may have to do this. I'm new to the blogging community and I have yet to do a challenge, but this one seems easy enough.

P.S. "Falling Off The Shelf & Princess Bookie are awesome!"
