I have lots of new series just sitting on my shelf waiting patiently to be read...so join me in selecting your 'first book in a new-to-you series' and see how many new series you can discover for added booky fun.

I liked Urban Shaman  (Walker Papers, #1) by C.E. Murphy-it was a bit different from the other books I'd been reading. I have books 2 and 3 but no joy in getting 4 and 5 yet! Beg For Mercy (Mercy Hollings, #1) by Toni Andrews is on my list of next 5 reads-I love the cover!

Basically it was set up to run from January to December 2011 but I will be starting a new First Book Fever 2012 challenge so you can just paste what you don't read this year onto the new thread in January and add more books on as you get them. That's what I'll be doing!

I haven't added any new 'book ones' to my list above for a few months...I figured there was enough on the list already! I'll save 'em for next year!

Jahan, this is the thread for reading only the first book in a series. The books where you've read more than the first book should be in the series challenge thread instead. x
