The Awesome Author Challenge

Alyce over at At Home With Books is hosting this fun challenge for 2010. I'm hoping to use this as an opportunity to clear a few books off my TBR shelf.

If you would like to participate, visit the sign up page.

The Rules:

The challenge starts January 1, 2010 and ends December 31, 2010.

Crossover from other challenges is allowed.

Choose the level at which you would like to participate, post about it and come back and leave a link to your post in Mister Linky.

Titles and authors do not have to be predetermined, and can change at any time.

Books can come from any genre or reading level, the only requirement is that you have heard great things about the author, but haven't yet read any of their works.

The Levels:

Easy: Choose three authors and read at least one title from each author.

Moderate: Choose six authors and read at least one title from each author.

Challenging: Choose ten authors and read at least one title from each author.

Over-Achieving: Anything over ten authors.

My Choices:

I will be participating at the Challenging level and will read one title from 10 authors. The authors I have chosen are:

Barbara Kingsolver

Graham Greene

John Ralston Saul

Lynne Hinton

Margaret A. Stanger

Maya Angelou

Peter James

Richard Ford

Robin Lee Hatcher

Wally Lamb

For some of these authors, I have more than one book on my shelf and have been meaning to read their work for quite some time. This will be a fun opportunity to do that!

Thanks for joining the challenge! I've been meaning to read something by Wally Lamb too, but had completely forgotten about him when it came time to make my list. I'll have to add him to mine.

Sounds like a fun challenge. Good luck!

Great choices - you have some authors there that I don't know so I'll have to see what books they have and maybe add them to my list.

Good luck.
