(Confession: Great-looking logos are a serious enticement for me to participate in challenges.
I also judge books by their covers. Come on, you do it, too, if you’re really honest about it! [Right?])
Here are the premise and the guidelines:
Have you read a book and at the end said you must read another by this author but haven’t? Then this Challenge is for you, what are you waiting for. 🙂 There are so many amazing authors but sometimes we get caught up in reading all the new we forget about the authors that have already impressed, excited us, gave us what all readers want, a great read, that wow moment, so this Challenge is to show all the authors that have pleased us already how thankful we are by reading more of their literary works.

Level of Participation
Waited too long: 2 – 4 books
Give me more: 5 – 8 books
Never too much: 9 – 12 books
I am going to participate at the “Waited Too Long” level, which means I’ll select 2-4 books by authors I’ve read before.
While I am not committing to any authors in particular until I test-drive the books (fussy, I know, but life is too short to spend on books one doesn’t like!) I will say that these authors are already on my list of authors to consider for this challenge:
Tim O’BrienNatalie BabbittJonathan TropperBill BrysonRebecca Stead
I’ll use this page as my home base for this challenge. I can already tell: this will be a good one!
