Thanks for the info from Alyce at At Home with Books!
The idea is to read 50 (or as many as you want) new authors (to you) throughout 2009. Here are the guidelines:
The challenge will run from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels, but anthologies are also a great way to try someone new.
It's supposed to be easy challenge, so you state how many new authors you want to try this year and then that’s your challenge. I’m trying 25 new authors. If you want a number given to you, try for either 25 or 50.
