For February: New Author Mini-Challenge: The Leauge

I found a Mini-Challenge I really thought was neat.  I really want to do this one.  It is for the month of February, So I am really going to try hard to do this (even though I am a little bit of a slow reader).

This Mini-Challenge is over at Literary Escapism.  This Challenge is:  New Author Mini-Challenge: The League.

This is to try some new authors in this great group call The League of Reluctant Adults.

Here is the list of Authors in the group: (click on the name to go to these sites.)

I have a few of these authors here to read, and have been reading some of them already recently.  And I feel a huge need to let you know I have been VERY, VERY pleased with what I read.

~ The Mini-Challenge runs from February 1, 2010 through February 28, 2010.  All the reviews are to have the February date.
~ The goal is to read up to 5 different authors from the list above.  If you have already read a novel by these authors why not try another book of theirs?  Great opportunity to.


Some of these authors have loved the idea so much they have offered to donate prizes.  If you would like to see what books are going to be up for spoils click here. (To go to Literary Escapism's site to see the list.)

Love the Leaguers! Good luck with the challenge,as it looks like a good one. Am tempted to sign up, but am already committed to reading non-Leaguer books next month. Have fun!

I've seen a number of blog that are participating in this challenge and it looks like a fun one. The funny thing is that I keep seeing many of these authors touring and being interviewed on all the different book blogs so I'm surprised to discover that they are actually considered new authors since I feel like I've been hearing about them for ages. Perhaps I should sign up as well as there are some authors on this list I've been wanting to read anyways.

This looks like a fun one. I've been wanting to join a book challenge, but can't now. Hope you have lots of fun with this one!

Alexia - Sorry to hear you can't join in the fun. I believe there is a max of 5 books, I think I'll be lucky to do the min of 3. I am going to give it my best shot though.

Simcha - I have been following a few of these authors a lot lately. Maybe just a few of them for a year or two. I know some of them are brand new to the published world too. I am really looking forward to these.

Melissa - Sorry to hear you wont be able to join in. Hope you are feeling better. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh good challenge, I'm sure you will do well.
I need to make my own personal mini-challenge b/c there are so many great authors I haven't made time for

Hi Deb! Thanks for the support. I just always hate how I am such a slow reader. I just try to hard to understand ever word on the page and in the book. It's just the way I am. I don't know why.

I do appreciate the support! Thank you!
