Another Reading Challenge

I have barely started my very first reading challenge when I found another that intrigued me - so I'm signing up. I am however limiting myself to these two for starters!!!!

I also invited my mother to join me in this challenge as something we could do together. We both love to read and we are always swapping books and book reviews so I thought this would be perfect.

The Challenge is the Unread Authors Challenge. The idea is that you pick 6 authors that you have never read before but always wanted to read and you choose one book by each of them to read between August 2008-February 2009. If you'd prefer you can choose 2 authors and read 3 books by each thus getting to know the author a little better. My mom and I choose the first path. Below is what we will be reading. I will be posting our reviews together and then linking them to the site!

Looks like I have a lot of reading to do and a lot of reviews to write!
