A friend of mine started a Yahoo! group called the 50 Book Challenge of 2008. The name says it all, so I’m not going to explain what the group is. However, it’s a challenge I’m going to have fun with. Reading 50 books in one year is no problem for me. I can go through a 400 page book in 2 days even with Ian around, so it’s a pretty easy challenge for me. So I’m going to add a little spin to it for my own sake. I’m going to read 50 new authors in 2008. That may be a little hard for me since I’ve been searching for new authors the past couple of months, but I should have no problem looking for me.
The members are going to try and post reviews of books they’ve read, so if you’re not a big reader and you want a challenge, come on and join us. Thats one book every 7.3 days, so a book a week. I dare you to this challenge.

To get things started, here are the new authors I’ve read this year. Anyone want to give me a new author to try? I prefer the genres: supernatural, paranormal, horror, historical romance, DnD (mainly Hickman & Weiss or Salvatore), comedic mysteries, or some classics. However, if someone gives a book, that’s not in one of these genres, a good enough review, I’ll try it.
