Unread Authors Challenge II

August 1, 2008 - January 31, 2009 (hosted by Sycorax Pine)

COMPLETED- 10/7/08

  1. The challenge will run from August 1, 2008 to January 31, 2009. You may join at any time before or during those six months.
  2. During those six months, read at least SIX books by an author whose work you have never read before.
  3. You may choose six different "unread" authors to introduce yourself to, or you may choose just one or two and explore their work in greater depth.
  4. Authors may be drawn from any genre of literature. The only requirement is that they be authors whose work you substantially regret not having read yet.
  5. Your choices may overlap with other challenges you have underway.
I selected (10) books that I have wanted to read for a while. All were written by "new to me" authors. For this challenge I plan to read (6) books as required to complete the challenge.

My List:
  1. Obedience; Will Lavender - 3/5
  2. Gargoyle; Andrew Davidson - 4.5/5
  3. Out Stealing Horses; Per Petterson - 5/5
  4. Shopping for Porcupine: A Life in Artic Alaska; Kantner - 5/5
  5. The Heretics Daughter; Kathleen Kent - 5/5
  6. The Grift; Deborah Ginsberg - 3.5/5
  7. Tomato Girl; Jayne Pupek - 5/5
  8. The Numerati; Stephen Baker - 5/5
  9. Goldengrove; Francine Prose-4/5
  10. Tethered; Amy MacKinnon - 3/5
