New Author Challenge 2009.

I decided to join this challenge because, last year, I decided to read at least five new authors, and I ended up reading around 22. It was so much fun discovering who else was out there writing outside of my reading comfort zone. This should be a fun way to discover even more great talented writers! I'm going for 15, because I plan to do some re-reading, and picking up some books by recently discovered favorites. :)

The Guidelines from Literary Escapism whom is hosting this challenge:

1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
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, but anthologies are also a great way to try someone new.
3. I want this to be an easy challenge, so you state how many new authors you want to try this year and then that’s your challenge. If you want a number given to you, try for either 25 or 50.
4. Add your name to the Mr. Linky here. If you do not have your own blog, you can join the group blog here.
5. Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome
6. When you read a new author, write your review (either at your site or the group blog) and then come back here and post a link to your review.
