Celebrate The Author Challenge

Becky at Becky’s Book Reviews is sponsoring a Celebrate The Author Challenge beginning

January 1, 2008 and running through December 31, 2008

Designed to celebrate author birthdays, the challenge requires that participants choose one author a month to read. When I took a look at Becky’s links to author birthdays, I realized this challenge would be an easy one for me to accomplish. Plus, Becky is allowing participants to choose as they go and to change lists at will – I love flexibility like that!!

So here are some of my ideas for each month (subject to change):


David Mitchell (b. Jan 1969) – Ghostwritten (completed January 30, 2008; rated 5/5; read my review)


J.M. Coetzee (b. Feb 9, 1940) – Life and Times of Michael K (completed February 17, 2008; rated 4/5; read my review)
