New Author Challenge

Read a book from 25 authors that you have never read before.

For every 5 new authors (new to you, not necessarily a debut author) that you read, you rank up a level.

1 - 5 - Bibliophage (bookworm)
6 - 10 - Bibliolater
11 - 15 - Bibliomane
16 - 20 - Bibliophile
21 - 25 - Bibliomaniac

All books must be at least 150 pages long. No graphic novels.
A book can only count for one task, so you must read 25 books in total.
This challenge runs from 1 November 2016 to 31 October 2017.
