New Author Challenge 2009

This is my first challenge so I thought I would start out with one that I think is attainable for me. In the New Author Challenge you choose the number of new authors that you want to read during the year. Literary Escapism suggests 25 or 50, but I am going for 25. The challenge runs from January 2009 to December 2009.

Check it out and join in if interested!
