C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8238 comments If you're wanting to broaden your reading with new authors, track them here. Set a goal of how many new authors you want to read and see how far you get over the year. These don't have to be authors with debut books, just ones you haven't read before.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8238 comments My list is not up to date. I should fix that! Glad you've already made it so far.


message 11: by Ritika (new)

Ritika Chhabra (justagirlhighonbooks) | 736 comments Haha, thank you. The two books I'm reading right now are from authors news to me, too. XD


message 12: by Ritika (new)

Ritika Chhabra (justagirlhighonbooks) | 736 comments Just 7 more authors to go, and I think I'm already going to add one more to this list soon enough. Hehe.


message 13: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8238 comments My ten are complete! Just have to see how many more I get this year. With doing so many rereads, probably not as many as last year.


message 14: by Christine (new)

Christine Marshall | 78 comments I'm in on this, I will be reading the classics and some young adult so there is no doubt that they will be new authors to me! I'll probably read 17 books through out the rest of the year and they will be new authors.
