- The challenge will run from August 1, 2008 to January 31, 2009. You may join at any time before or during those six months.
- During those six months, read at least SIX books by an author whose work you have never read before.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
