Awesome Author Challenge 2011

I'm doing it again.  I really enjoyed all the challenges in which I  participated, in 2010, even if I didn't complete one or two.  Once again  At Home With Books is hosting the awesome author challenge.  And I'm in. I'm treading softly this year.  I'm only reading what I feel like it, and I'm not deciding in advance except for this challenge.
What is the Awesome Author Challenge?

It's a chance to read works from those authors who have been recommended to you time and again.

The rules: 

  • The challenge starts January 1, 2011 and ends December 31, 2011.
  • Read works from authors that are completely new to you (you haven't read any of their writing before).
  • Read books that have been recommended by friends, bloggers, or books that have been on your TBR forever because you have heard that the author's writing is fantastic.
  • 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:

Simply Awesome - 3 to 6 Books  this is my level of commitment.

  • Totally Awesome - 6 to 10 Books
  • Blinded By Overexposure to Awesomeness - Over 10 Books

This sounds like it would be a really inspiring challenge. Thanks for all the book-related stuff you post Irene. One of these days I'm going to catch up on my reading. (That's why I gave "501 Must Read Books" to my daughter for Christmas).

I've been in a reading slump.  I swore in this 150th celebration of Canadian confederacy I would only read Canadian authors.  And I h...
